After Simon hears about this disturbing episode in Mary Rose's childhood, he becomes obsessed with finding out what happened. He proceeds to launch his own investigation and arranges during their honeymoon for them to visit the island where she disappeared. But as Mary Rose's behavior gets stranger after their engagement, the need for Simon to unlock the truth about her past grows even more urgent. What he uncovers is beyond his most terrifying fears.
Mary Rose is author Geoffrey Girard's chilling and modern take on a classic ghost story originally written by J. M. Barrie. And, for years, master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock attempted to adapt Mary Rose into a film but was never successful. With this novel, Girard taps into the nightmarish fears that inspired both Barrie and Hitchcock, while also bringing the story to the present day with his own unique voice.

Modern take on literary ghost story disappoints
Mary Rose is touted as a scary literary thriller with complex elements of the supernatural. I was unconvinced. The story dragged on and on, an story though there were a few frightening moments, overall, I couldn’t get into the story. Even Meier’s narration was slow-going, and while her attempt at the American accent for the fiancé/husband were admirable, it didn’t cut it for me, and i generally rate her as a great narrator. I wish I liked it more, but it’s a slog to get through and I can’t recommend it.

Interesting ghost story.
I enjoyed this ghostly version much more than the play or even Alfred Hitchcock's idea.
