The Ghosting of Rabbie Burns
The Ghosting of Rabbie Burns by Gillian Duffy.
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 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.

‘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
