Reactions and Reviews

"Linda Mooney's latest Ghost and Mrs. Muir fanzine, The Portrait, deals in a very unique way with the beloved prop in the show, the portrait of Captain Daniel Gregg. She has divided the fanzine into two parts, "Reclamation" and "Restoration", both of which explore separate possible avenues of thought. In "Reclamation", Linda puts a twist on the origins and the qualities of the portrait and has very believable characters scrambling to make sure that the portrait remains a fixture in Gull Cottage. Although the portrait is of Captain Gregg, much of the story focuses on Carolyn's emotions, giving us the opportunity to see more of her character emerge. Right from the start of "Restoration", Linda caught my interest and my dread as she wrote about Carolyn's growing frustration with her life in Gull Cottage. Then again, with a surprising twist, Linda comes up with a unique answer to the puzzle. Once again, the characters are well-developed and completely credible, meshing well with the characters as developed on the screen. I thoroughly enjoyed reading both stories, and would encourage any fans of the show who are interested in romantic fanfiction to read The Portrait." [1]
