Publisher's Summary

An historian by training, Barbara Erskine is the author of three collections of short stories, and eleven bestselling novels that demonstrate her interest in both history and the supernatural. Lady of Hay, her first novel, has now sold over two million copies worldwide. She lives with her family in an ancient manor house near Colchester, and a cottage near Hay-on-Wye. Erskine returns with this beautiful and haunting tale of dark forces and mystical powers.
In present-day Cambridge, Abi, a recently ordained priest of the Church of England, is appointed to a notoriously difficult parish. The priest in charge is the charismatic but fundamentalist Kier. He objects to her mysticism, her practice of healing in particular. When she sees a vision of a congregation in an old church, Kier accuses her of witchcraft, but Abi soon sees more visions; an entire Roman family history dark with betrayal and a promise of bloody revenge.
With foreboding forces all building up to violence, Abi must battle the approaching terror along with her own personal demons, drawing upon the expertise of Druidry and shamanism from a questionable source….

Riveting listening

Having read and enjoyed other books by this author I was delighted to find a title that I hadn't seen before and I was not disappointed. The story held me enthralled and I couldn't wait to pick up my ipod and continue listening. I feel quite lost now that it has come to an end but I can thoroughly recommend this audio book.

Old Style Barbara Erskine

I have read all Barbara Erskine's long stories, since her first, Lady of Hay, which is one of my all time favourite books. This definitely ranks in her top three. Back to her old style of narrative, quite easy going and relaxing, but a really compelling story (well 2 actually!) I haven't got to the end yet, but am loving listening to this book. Also have to comment on the narrator, I am not normally a fan of female narrators - I don't know why but I just generally find them harder to get used to. Not so with this. A really lovely voice, good subtle voice changes for the different characters and very easy to listen to. A definite 5 star audiobook.
