From the best-selling author of Time's Legacy and Lady of Hay comes her thrilling new novel River of Destiny.

On the banks of the River Deben in Suffolk lies a set of barns dating back to the Anglo Saxons. Within their walls, secrets have been buried deeply. Zoe and Ken have just moved into one of the barns, ready to start a new life away from the hustle and bustle of the city. To the outside world they seem like an ordinary couple, but underneath they are growing more distant by the day. And when Zoe becomes close to local recluse, Leo, she finds her attraction to him undeniable.

Whilst farmers are ploughing the land surrounding the barns, sets of human bones are found and when the police arrive it becomes clear that the bones are much older than first suspected.... From an ancient burial ground to a Victorian murder, Erskine will have you gripped to her every word as the mystery unfolds.

    " Her book, "Child of the Phoenix", is one of my all time favorite books. It was such a well done story and i loved it! For me, this latest book was just o.k. I liked the unique setting and I was initially drawn into the story, but the 2nd half of the book was a disappointment. I liked Zoe and Leo, I just felt that some of the contemporary story was a bit far fetched. The outcome for most of the main characters in the historical setting was not what I was expecting either. "

    " I read it. I finished it. I didn't love it. I found some the characters to be annoying, however it kept me amused. "

    " Really enjoyed this book. The three entwined stories worked so well as the lives from the present overlapped with the lives from the past. A very intriguing mystery was solved and Barbara Erskine has created another chilling novel. A perfect read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Georgina Allen | 2/1/2014

    " An interesting premise and plot sadly marred by heavy-handed description and unlikeable 2-D characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Helen Prew | 1/30/2014

    " Much better story than the blurb on the back suggested! Loved it! shall seek out more by Barbara Erskine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mireille | 1/24/2014

    " I loved this book and couldn't put it down , the overlapping time frames and characters had me engrossed from start to finish an incredible read . "

    " Excellent plus, very highly recommended "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 12/30/2013

    " I am a big Barbara Erskine fan, and although this was an enjoyable and entertaining read, it seemed to lack the depth of earlier novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenna | 12/9/2013

    " Erskine certainly knows how to put a story together that can hook and scare you all at the same time. The "darkness" of her novels always give me pause but there is just something about the characters and the storyline that I just can't resist! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharron | 12/6/2013

    " I've been a longtime fan of Erskine and find I just sink into her stories, great way to while away a hot and steamy summer day. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean Dyer | 12/5/2013

    " Enjoyed the three different era's. The author tells the story using icons to denote the era you're reading about....it took me just a week to read ...couldn't put it down ...Barbara Erskine is my all time favourite author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosemary | 11/13/2013

    " Nice easy read and very enjoyable "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz | 11/12/2013

    " A real page turner, I couldn't put it down. I've never read a Barbara Erskine book before but seeing it was set near Woodbridge and involved ghosts and Anglo Saxons I thought I'd give it a go. I'll be reading more from this author in the future. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 10/18/2013

    " I clealry loved this book. Three time lines kept separate via pictures before each section began. The suspense built equally on all three time lines. Of course the ending was a bit anticlimactic but that's BE for you! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen Jones | 8/15/2013

    " Excellent. Clever interweaving of three time periods. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Antoinette Young | 8/5/2013

    " It waned at the end, I think Times Legacy was her best book that I have read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karyn | 6/27/2013

    " This book seemed to lack something that her previous books shone with, and it seemed to end rather too abruptly, almost as if the author got tired of writing and decided to just pull it all together so she could go on with something else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista | 1/7/2013

    " Overall I liked it. The ending seemed a little anti-climatic though...still a great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dilys | 8/11/2012

    " Set in three different time era,s this is a typical Barbara Erskine novel. Three different stories are branded together to make an intriguing story. Would recommend to anyone. "

    " Loved the story all the way till the end - found the ending rushed and confusing. "
