A heart warming and atmospheric Christmas story read by the author Elizabeth St.John.

Elizabeth weaves her gentle ghostly tale around two captains; the real life character of Captain Edward St.John who died at Lydiard in 1645 and the fictionalised Captain Erich Hoffner, a patient in the German Prisoner of War hospital camp in Lydiard Park during the bitterly cold Christmas of 1944.
