about

The powerful new timeslip novel from the worldwide bestselling author of Lady in Hay, in which the fate of a young woman becomes entwined with the extraordinary history of a Celtic princess. When Jess is attacked by someone she once trusted, she flees to her sister’s house in the Welsh borders to recuperate. There, she is disturbed by the cries of a mysterious child. Two thousand years before, the same valley is the site of a great battle between Caratacus, king of the Brtitish tribes, and the invading Romans. The proud king is captured and taken as a prisoner to Rome with his wife and daughter, the princess Eigon. Jess is inexorably drawn to investigate Eigon’s story, and as the Welsh cottage is no longer a peaceful sanctuary she decides to visit Rome. There lie the connections that will reveal Eigon’s astonishing life – and which threaten to reawaken Jess’s own tormentor… Barbara Erskine’s ability to weave together the past and the present makes this a tremendous novel of Roman and Celtic history, passion and intrigue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointing The first Barbara Erskine book I read was "The Lady of Hay". I loved it! I read a couple of others which weren't too bad. However, this book is just a tiny notch above a Harlequin Romance!!! It insults the intelligence of the reader, the heroine is made to look a moron, it lacks substance, plot and believability. We have Jess our central figure...who is raped by an "unknown" person [it was obvious who did it] and Jess fails to go to the police...she is a teacher and goes to a high school dance where she gets so drunk she doesn't remember a thing...the perpetrator also uses a "drug" supposedly although we don't know why or what. and it's all downhill from there. She of course meets the love of her life...who is tall dark and handsome [oh please] travels the world where no one works and everyone has money lol. Ms. Erskine attempts to weave a tale incorporating "present day" and "the time of Jesus in Rome" one of the roman women speaking about a slave calls him "dishy"???? OMG 2000 years ago? Dishy? That word isn't even used today never mind 2000 yrs ago!!!I hate to start a book and not finish it so I struggled to the halfway mark...but it was so predictible and awful I had to stop. How can someone write a book as good as Lady of Hay and then write this drivel?

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Warrior's Princess Loved it. More history woven into a riveting story with characters who get into your head and heart. Couldn't put it down - but didn't want it to finish! I was surprised at the number of violent deaths but it was a very violent time in history.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not So Appealing I couldn’t get into this book as much as Time’s Legacy by the same author which I found to be a more fascinating and wonderful read. Although the Warrior’s Princess had a mysterious edge to it, I found it just didn’t grab me and thought as well that the characters did not have much depth. Definitely Time’s Legacy is a real winner and is highly recommended having given it four stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blew me away What an incredible book. This was the first I'd read by Barbara Erskine and certainlyy won't be the last. The story jumps the entire time between ancient Rome and current day England but doesn't leave you feeling like you've been pushed around. The transitions are seamless and I don't know which story I wanted more - the current or the ancient! Read this book and you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another Great One from Erskine I love Barbara Erskine's books. They're big and solid. And they have a specific formula to them. And I love them. This one is set in Rome just as Christianity is starting to spread and includes some cross-over characters from her last book. The reader does not need to be familiar with the earlier book to fully benefit from this one. It is suspenseful and keeps the reader hooked from beginning to end. If you're not tried out Erskine, you should.
