The ghostly lover (Hardwick)

I enjoyed The ghostly lover by Hardwick slightly more than the last Hardwick that I read, but not very much more. This was her first book, and I suppose has some slightly autobiographical elements. Unfortunately I forgot to review it when I read it (oops!) and now can't really remember much of what it was about (another mark of a not terribly enjoyable book I guess), but I do rather like the cover image, which is very reminiscent of 1950s America, the period when the book is set, and will probably hold onto the book for that reason!

I did like the cover however, and will be hanging onto the book for this reason.


  1. Hmm, I found this in a nice hardbound copy at a second hand bookstore last year. I'm not sure if I want to read it now because of your review. The Virago edition has a beautiful cover though.

  3. I had a slightly better experience with the last Hardwick I read - post about it shortly.
