From the Sunday Times bestselling author comes an epic tale of love, passion and heartbreak.
Love is as uncertain and as untamable as war…
In the summer of 1940, most eyes are focused on the skies above the South of England. The battle for Britain has just begun. But young Evie Lucas has eyes for no-one but a dashing young pilot called Tony. Evie has a glittering career as an artist ahead of her but seems to be wasting her time sketching endless portraits of Tony. She wants his parents to have something to remember him by in case it all goes wrong in the war…
Seventy years later, and recently widowed art historian Lucy is trying to put the pieces of her life back together. And in order to do that, Lucy needs to uncover the mystery surrounding a painting in her home. But as she accidentally ends up stirring up a hornet's nest of history which has been deliberately obliterated, Lucy finds herself in danger from people past and present who have no intention of letting an untold truth ever surface.

Could not stop listening ..
Great story, atmospheric..
Don't really like supernatural..but Barbara Erskine makes you believe..
Excellent narration, accents..
Having read Lady of Hay..was reluctant to try any more from Barbara Erskine as that was wonderful and did not think any thing could be so good. However, this held my attention from beginning to end and even though the end may have been a bit predictable - could not wait to hear the outcome. I would definitely buy Lady of Hay in audible form..but for some strange reason only available in abridged version. Having read the hardcopy, would not want to miss a sentence..come on audible don't short change us. Bring Lady of Hay out in its full unabridged glorious version....
