The Ghosting of Rabbie Burns

Start

Heartbroken author Emily Winters takes herself away to her aunt’s old cottage in Ayrshire to get over her cheating ex. As she celebrates Burns night alone, wishing that the right man would show up, she gets a visitation slightly different than what she’d hoped for – the ghost of Rabbie Burns (John Kielty) appears to give her some dating advice…and he knows what he’s talking about!

Featuring the great songs and poems of Burns, such as ‘My Love is Like a Red Red Rose’, ‘Ae Fond Kiss’, ‘Charlie is my Darlin’ and, of course, ‘Auld Lang Syne’, this hilarious comedy proves that love and relationships haven’t changed that much in 200 years after all.

‘Gillian Duffy’s writing takes you on a rollercoaster ride of emotion’ – Goodreads.com

‘If you imagine Richard Curtis deciding to do his own ‘Scottish play’, the result would be remarkably similar to this charming little tale from Gillian Duffy’ – The Wee Review
