As a youngster I used to watch the television show The Ghost and Mrs Muir starring Edward Mulhare and Hope Lange along with Charles Nelson Reilly and Reta Shaw as the indomitable Martha I always loved the show and it s whimsical take on a haunted sea side cottage So when I happened upon this book at my local library I decided to read it The TV show was comical and lighthearted than the book I never saw the movie made from the book starring Rex Harrison and Gene Tierney so I don t know how that compares although now I may see if I can find it on DVD or streamingThe time is 1900 and the book is a sobering telling of the tale of a widowed woman Lucy Muir with 2 young children that are living in her husband s family home along with his mother and sisters Lucy feels that she always has to be agreeable around the family and they always see her as poor Lucy She decides she wants to be independent and goes about finding a place to settle with the children She finds Gull Cottage and decides that it s perfect for her and her children s needs Thus begins the tale We learn about Lucy s triumphs and tragedies How the children view their mother and their lives and how a ghost helps to shape Lucy into a person that takes forays out of her comfort zone All in all a good book

Summary The Ghost and Mrs Muir ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Al companionship with the ghost of handsome former sea captain Daniel Gregg Through the struggles of supporting her children seeking out romance from the wrong places and working to publish the captain's story as a book Blood and Swash Lucy finds in her secret relationship wit. The Ghost And Mrs Muir is refreshingly uniue surely startlingly original in its day in beautifully told prose Ireland s Josephine Aimee Campbell Leslie was an elouent gifted authoress She acuaints us with Lucy Anna Gregg and Martha endearingly For superb originality and authorship five stars are easily earned I settle at an appreciative four Despite coming out 71 years ago even earlier than the goody goody 1950s it was disappointing that Lucy uavered and seldom stood her ground before anyone except Gregg She grew and got better but was only uneuivocally firm about residing in her seaside houseOne shocking attitude was Gregg declaring she could have his money and Lucy wondering if it should go to a relative In the 1940s didn t friends become family If Gregg liked a cousin less than Lucy her pets and children why hesitate The owner of the money wants you to take it Whom are people helping by professing independence and declining assistance they need Lucy bought the house but Josephine did not clarify if that store was depleted When Lucy and her family struggle again we wonder about itOn the subject of follow up information I would have delighted in evolved outcomes generally Anna and Cyril have happy lives with Grandchildren With Cyril secure in his career Lucy could have taught him something by revealing everything about the famous book It would have been a breeze to share Gregg s protective presence with Anna In lieu of it should have afforded me tremendous gratification to know she would recount all of that information to her progeny at least in a personal letter or will We could do without the final paragraph Prior to it the end was unexpected in its spiritual jubilance It leaves us floating upon that thought with wonderment and a smile
