Clare, the wife of a City merchant banker, inherits the castle of Dunbuy, once the home of Isobel, mistress of Robert the Bruce. She finds herself haunted by Isobel's dramatic life, which reflects the events of her own. Barbara Erskine is the author of "Lady of Hay"
Clare seems to have it all, money, land and a handsome husband. However, when Paul and Clare learn that they cannot have children, things seem to go awry. Through focused meditation, Clare begins reliving the past as Isobel, Countess of Buchan. The story alternates between the crumbling life of Paul and Clare and the war torn Scotland of the fourteenth century. As Paul makes one bad investment after another, he begins to pressure Clare to sell her inheritance, the ruined castle on the sea and the surrounding land of Duncairn. As he learns about her "trips into the past" he first involves the church and then plays upon her phobias to drive her further away from sanity.

Well written, this was definitely a page turner. I first picked up the book because I was interested in Isobel, the woman who spent four years hanging in a cage for crowning Robert the Bruce King of Scotland. However, now I've found an increasing interest in Scottish history. Her suspenseful writing style keeps the reader engaged and interested and her characters are dynamic and interesting.

Clare Royland appears to have it all, but her marriage is a lonely one, strained further by her husband's financial cares. She is haunted too by a strange, growing fascination with an ancestress from the distant past. Troubled by inexplicable dreams that terrify but also compel, Clare is forced to look back through centuries for an answer. In 1306, Scotland's at war. Isobol, Countess of Buchan faces fear and the prospect of untimely death. Duncairn, Isobel's home and Clare's beloved heritage, becomes a battleground for passions that span the centuries. Clare must fight to save Duncaire and to save herself from the powers of Isobel....

A book that kept me wanting to read more.

Nothing personal
Good read, but not her best work. I enjoyed reading the historical parts but found Clare's character unbelievably annoying. What a pathetic woman! Rather than feeling sympathetic, I just wanted to shake her and scream at her to get a grip. A 28 year old woman whose occupation is to be a wife, doesn't have the first clue what documents she's signing, wearing a fur coat without 'realising' that animals are killed in the process, the list goes on and on. I found myself getting increasingly irritated with the the modern day story, which dragged on and on. At the end I was skipping the pages to see what happened to the bastard husband. Phew! That being said, I like most of Erskine's work and I'm re-reading 'Midnight is a lonely place' now, which in my opinion is one of her most gripping books, with 'Lady of Hay'.

It takes a little to keep everyone straight because this is a multi-leveled story involving time shifts. Once you have the characters in your mind they don't want to leave! Loved this story but then I love all of Barbara Ershine's books.

Found this novel very hard to put down,loved it. Scottish history will always be a winner if written accurately even if embellished with fictional romance. A must read.

Entertaining look at an obscure historical figure.

I absolutely love this book and hadn't read it for years. The only problem is that I can't put it down at night and am now suffering from a lack of sleep. Lots of mystery and a real page turner. The good thing about reading it on Kindle is that you can't easily turn to the last page to try and find the answers. I would recommend this book to everybody.

I purchased this book on Kindle because it was so much cheaper than the print version.

Very good read. Thought provoking.
