A Ghosts Story
A Ghost's Story (Lorna Gibb)
A Ghost’s Story, Gibb’s first novel, is a spell-binding tale which tells the story of Katie King, the most famous ghost of the last two centuries. Katie King made her first appearance in New Lanark and infamously haunted the social pioneer and mill-owner Robert Owen throughout his life.
From the candle-lit drawing rooms of the Victorian era through to the appearance of spirits in the 21st century, Gibb will take you on a social history of the séance from the 19th century to present day, exploring the boundaries between what is real and what is unreal and ultimately examining why we are all so gripped by ghost stories.
