Sandy's Short TakesJulie Beard manages to combine elements of comedy and the supernatural in her latest romantic adventure, My Fair Lord. In this retelling of My Fair Lady, Caroline Wainwright, a young heiress in Georgian England, learns that she must marry or lose her inheritance. A thief is snatched from prison to play the part of the groom, and Caroline surprises even herself by falling in love with her new husband. Beard leads us on a lively jaunt as Caroline attempts to determine if her groom has been possessed by the 200-year-old ghost who haunts her estate.
