Summary

A stunning novel of contemporary and historical betrayal and revenge, from the author of Lady of Hay.

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…

Note to self …. Read info more carefully!

Unfortunately unlike all the other audiobooks by Barbara Erskine this is very much abridged, a mere 3 hours long. The narrator was pleasant to listen to but the story content lacked the depth and details normally found in the unabridged options.
