Product Description

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.

©1994 Barbara Erskine; ©2010 BBC Audiobooks Ltd

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Fan 8 Sep 2007
Format:Paperback
I've read maybe 4 or 5 Barbara Erskine novels now and to a certain extent, yes, they follow a formula. But for the sake of being entertained I was willing to get past this. I read through the 500 or so pages (a mere trifle for her books, I might add!) and at times it was scary and suspense-filled and I was thoroughly entertained. And then I get to the last page! I don't want to spoil the book for anyone wanting to read it, but to be honest, I had to read the last page a few times to make absolutely sure I wasn't seeing things and that it did indeed say what it did! After being taken through this roller coaster ride of a story, what an incredible let-down! It won't stop me from reading her books -I'm about to start 'Hiding from the light' but if she does this again, I think I'll be dropping her publishers a wee note!!

By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is a very well written and absorbing novel by a master story teller. It is highly descriptive and captures the reader in its thrall. It is a chilling and imaginative ghost story centered around a love triangle that existed approximately two thousand years ago and ultimately ended in murder. The murderer, Marcus, a Roman legionaire, is cursed by his wife, Claudia, after he has her lover, Nion, a druid priest, killed. Marcus then kills Claudia. It is this tragedy that now haunts the present.
When London based author, Kate Kennedy, breaks off with her selfish live in lover, she goes off to lick her wounds and nurse a broken heart in a cottage in a remote area of North Essex. The cottage, though cozy, begins to become a less than hospitable place, when unexplained sounds, scents, and traces of moist earth and sand begin to manifest themselves. Moreover, her landlord's son, Greg, and daughter, Allison, seem determined to have her leave the cottage.
Discovering that Allison has come across an archaeological site not far from the cottage, Kate goes to the site and finds an ancient Celtic ornament. She soon begins to hear voices in her mind and see visions of what cannot be. Ultimately, Greg, Allison, and Kate become trapped in the miasma of these ancient star crossed lovers who are determined to bring their long dormant conflict to resolution. The cost to those in the present is dear, as the reader will soon find out.
Be warned. This is a scary book.

5.0 out of 5 stars With due respect ..... 28 Jun 2008
By Marie
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
to anyone who didn't find this novel of B.E.'s gripping - I just gotta say that I DID! To the point where I really DID "accidently" fall asleep with the light on for several nights, till my then 30-something emotions settled down again!. Even though on first reading I frankly found the story a bit too hair-raising for comfort, I was fascinated enough to skip through some of the scarier scenes and read the final chapter. It may have been years till I could read this book again (determined to prove to myself that I could master my own imagination) but I'm pleased to say that I HAVE done so - and though it's not-so-scary to me now - it's still an impressive historical/modern day romantic "chiller". So settle down with your teddy bear at close hand - and enjoy!
