The Ghost of Seagull Cottage

A haunting tale of love, loss and finding one’s place in the world.

Widowed artist Annabel returns to Guernsey seeking a fresh start for herself and her young daughter away from her late husband’s controlling family. Seagull Cottage appears perfect, by the sea and with a low rent. The snag is it comes with a resident ghost, Daniel, a sea captain who died 70 years ago in 1946. He built the cottage and objects to anyone not family living there. He and Annabel have to come to terms with sharing what he still considers to be his home.

After a difficult start they begin to share their pasts and an unlikely friendship blooms, becoming deeper as they spend more time together. Annabel realises she’s falling for him but would she truly prefer a ghost to a real live man?

Blending elements of romance, mystery and the supernatural into a compelling tale about the power of human connection and presenting a modern twist on R.A. Dick’s novel The Ghost and Mrs Muir and the classic movie of the same name.

    It’s like Jersey was about 20 years ago – a lot calmer!

    I’ve never been to Guernsey, the closest I’ve gotten is Jersey, but I don’t remember it at all, as I was only two years old, and apparently all I would eat was Hula Hoops!!

    Hauteville House, where Victor Hugo lived. One of the most interesting and eccentric houses I have ever toured, and it gave me a good insight to the man and his writing

    Entering for The Ghost of Seagull Cottage. I’ve never been to Guernsey but it’s on my destination list to visit. I loved The Guernsey Potato Peel & Pie Club book. It’s all about the magic & intrigue of an island so close to France, yet English & the curious history.

    I haven’t been to Guernsey, but watched a documentary by Michael Portillo, and it looked stunning. He said that the people are incredibly friendly and amiable.

    Sadly I have not visited Guernsey YET but I do collect Guernsey stamps because they are so beautiful reflecting places to visit, flowers, birds, animals, etc. One day I must rectify this.

    I love the compact size of Guernsey, you can drive around it easily and visit beautiful beaches, lovely countryside & enjoy cafés & little shops!
    I haven’t been there for many years now, perhaps I shall go again soon!

    I like the slower pace of life in Guernsey. It also seems to be in a time warp.

    When we last visited Guernsey, which was quite a few years ago, we loved visiting the WW2 exhibitions and visitors attractions around the island. We found them very interesting and historical.

    The islands of Guernsey have so much to offer including coastal and cliff path walks, breathtaking views, history and heritage, plus proximity to France.
