Dick Young stays in his friend Professor Magnus Lane's house in Cornwall, on the understanding he will be a guinea-pig for a new drug that Magnus has developed. As a result of the experiment he is transported back to fourteenth century Cornwall.
With each 'trip' he becomes more and more involved with medieval intrigue, adultery and murder. Is it merely hallucination; a subconscious escape from his own complicated life, or a real journey into the past? He becomes obsessed with the world he visits, and past and present eventually become inextricably and perilously mixed.

Du Maurier - enough said.
I read this story as a book several years ago, so could remember a lot of the plot, but still thoroughly enjoyed this as an audio book. An unusual story, and good historical detail.
The historical detail and the area descriptions, which are very accurate - I used to live in the area, so can recognise all the places described.
No favourite, all are good
Just a little sadness at the ending.
Pity that this is an abridged version, and I did find the music an annoyance - I would have preferred Chapter 1, Chapter 2 etc

My all time favorite up to this day
