Summary

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.

Midnight is a lonely place

Found this story very boring, it went on and on and on in the same vein, could not listen to the second half, have better things to do with 7 hours of my life. Maybe a different narrator would make all the difference !

Another good listen

Another Barbara Erskine classic. These are books I will want to read a second and even third times. As usual, the narration was excellent, the writing the same. When I see a book by Barbara erskine, I know it will be worth listening to.

Midnight is a lonely place

I loved this story! It was definitely the best ghost, spirit story I have ever read!
Plus an intriguing introduction to the history around Colchester and the east coast of east anglia!
The way Barbra Erskine wove the two stories together was remarkable!
I thoroughly recommend this book it is amazing!
Also the narrator Rula Lenska is superb she reads the story at an extremely good pace interacting all the characters with voices effortlessly!
I have given this book 5 stars I wish I could have given it more!

and scary place!

Now just the front cover of this made me think, "Granny book, skip it!" but it's not, it's really good!

The author is able to keep the tension on high alert throughout, and seeing as it's a fully unabridged version, that's pretty impressive to me! A biographer splits up from her partner and moves to a remote cottage to get on with her new Byron script. The teenager daughter of the family up the road starts a dig at the beach, unearthing roman artifacts. Could these finds explain the changes in behaviour of the girl, or is there some sort of haunting going on?

great story, narration could be better

The story is fantastic. What spoiled it for me was the narration. Some of the words were pronounced incorrectly which was irritating. At the end of the book the author's name was given as Barbara Erksine when it it Erskine , a careless and unnecessary mistake.

Disappointed

I love Barbara Earskine but this is not her best, I felt that the story line just went on and on and I couldn't wait to get to the end which was a bit of an anti climax, thankfully her more latest titles are far better

Midnight is a lonely place . By Barbara Erskine

I find all of Barbara Erskiine's books amazing, well studied to be accurate. Very hard to put down to.
