A Ghost Story

Peter Marshall

  • A compelling tale of sex, scandal, and the supernatural in 17th century Britain and Ireland
  • A remarkable piece of historical detective work uncovering the intriguing links between two apparently quite unrelated events
  • Illuminates a whole range of related topics, from shifting sexual identities to the politics of religion, from Anglo-Irish relations to the development of modern folklore
