Helen Dunmore’s The Greatcoat is a thrilling ghost story set in wartime and post-war East Yorkshire. This¬† mesmerising tale tells the story of newly married Isabel who, left alone in a cold, damp flat,¬† discovers a greatcoat that she sleeps under for warmth. It is not long before she is woken by dashing pilot Alec tapping at her window and begins a clandestine affair that threatens her grasp on reality. A haunting tale about the power of the past to possess those in the present, The Greatcoat is a powerful novel from the highly-acclaimed author of The Siege and The Betrayal.
