It’s the 1950s in Yorkshire; rationing is still in effect. Newlywed Isabel Carey is cold. She and her doctor husband Philip have just moved to Kirby Mintern to a flat with a heavy-footed landlord upstairs. When Isabel finds an RAF greatcoat and begins to add it to blankets at night she finds herself visited by Alec, an RAF captain, and this ghost story is on its way… I’m glad this was just novella size. I’m not sure the author or me as the reader could sustain this little tale in longer form. It had an unraveling affect on Isabel and on me!
