After a broken love affair, biographer Kate Kennedy retires to a remote cottage on the wild Essex coast to work on her new book - until her landlord's daughter uncovers a Roman site nearby and long-buried passions are unleashed! In her lonely cottage, Kate is terrorized by mysterious forces. What do these ghosts want? That the truth about the violent events of long ago be exposed or remain concealed?

Kate must struggle for her life against earthbound spirits and ancient curses as hate, jealousy, revenge, and passion do battle across the centuries.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 2/9/2014

    " This is my favourite of Barbara Erskine's books. The first I ever read and the best. I originally picked it up because I loved the idea of renting a cottage in the middle of nowhere to write a book, I couldn't put it down once the spooky things started happening. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cathy | 2/4/2014

    " I read this book about 20 years ago! I've always intended to read it again. Loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sidnie | 1/22/2014

    " This book sent shivers up and down my spine, especially reading it alone late at night. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trish | 1/22/2014

    " I enjoy Barbara Erskine's books, as I love her concept of dual times interweaving, and she does it so proficiently. I have read everything she has published and am always disappointed when I hav ejust finished one, as it means I will then have to wait for the next. There are no duds, but this, to me, stands out as her best. A close follow-up is House of Echoes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Grainger | 1/20/2014

    " This book is very very creepy, it is scary without being to graphic, really builds up atmosphere! I have to say I think it is the best book by BE I have read so far really keeps the attention all the way to the climatic ending. If you are new to BE this is the first book you should read!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 1/12/2014

    " I enjoyed this book but the ending was rather abrupt "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sori | 1/9/2014

    " Lame! Halfway through I wanted the protagonists to yell at the ghosts that nobody (including me!) gave a crap about their 2,000 year old mystery. And what the hell was that ending about? Avoid this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kylie | 12/8/2013

    " Creepy read, I had chills through most of the book. I couldn't put it down, just had to know what was going to happen next. But sadly I was a bit disappointed with the ending and found it didn't seem to fit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsty Ellinor | 11/29/2013

    " Absolutely brilliant - my first ever Erskine Book and I have read it about 20+ times. Love it love it love it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carol W. | 11/27/2013

    " Too many ghostly encounters that are unbelievable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Donna | 11/24/2013

    " I really liked her first book, LADY OF HAY. This one was way too long and got bogged down in extraneous plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 11/24/2013

    " A good read and a real page turner, but I did find myself wondering when it was going to finish as it just kept going on and on with yet another mishap befalling our heroes, but then when it did finally finish, I was left feeling a little let down as it left a lot of loose ends. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathie | 11/10/2013

    " I read this story many years ago and don't remember all the entities that well, but I do remember that there was a Celtic/Saxon story in the background that controlled the lives of the people in the current era. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 5/22/2013

    " Very scary for me. I couldn't watch the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelled | 5/3/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book. Every time I read one of Barbara Erskines books I have no problem putting myself into the setting. Nothing better than reading this book on a cold winters night! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gail | 5/1/2013

    " First Barbara Erskine book that I read... and was completely hooked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca (everyday reader) | 1/17/2013

    " A chilling and mysterious story of a love triangle from the past and their graves and spirits many. many years later. Not a straight forward romance but compelling just the same. Just do not know how it ended up and who Kate chose to be with. Good read!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan | 5/13/2012

    " Lovely spooky atmosphere.....she does it everytime...entices you into her story so much so that you can't put it down. Great!! "

    " Good but dragged a little at the end! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caryn | 1/28/2012

    " I read this many years ago and really enjoyed it. I tried it on audio book version recently and did not like it at all. The narrator was dry and sounded bored the whole time, and it was a struggle for me to finish it. But I did like it in book format. "
