Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Great I love a good ghost story, that makes the hair on the back of your neck, stand on end. This book is about a bunch of short ghost stories of the sea. I did find it to be a good read. Barbara has written some other short ghost story books that I have read a few years ago, that I truely have enjoyed reading. If you like short ghost stories, I do recommend this book.
