I wonder how many of the buyers were informed the ward area is haunted by a nurse, who died during WW2 trying to save children?
Would you buy a haunted house?
As a writer and believer of ghost stories -- what little rep I once had -- was from writing ghost stories. The prospect of encountering a spirit intrigues me.
Perhaps, the idea was used as a selling point.
I was considering using this story for one of my ghost stories -- real events give a better story -- but, I decided otherwise. Nobody bought any of my other ghost stories, why would this be different?
