I love most of Ms. Erskine's works especially Lady of Hay and House of Echoes, among others.
I love most of Ms. The story is dragged out too long and could have been cut by two hundred pages at least. The reason is because after some time, the story gets repetitive. The story centers around a Scottish man, Adam, who as a young boy came upon a Pictish stone carving up on the hills and through this stone steps through a portal into another time, taking him thousands of years through.
Two Barbara Erskine books in a row, because she writes so well! This one was a heavier tome than the last because it tells the epic story of a Druid priestess's obsession with a mortal man across time and place, spanning more than 50 years. Brid is a vicious and jealous character who will stop at nothing to have her Adam to herself, even though he tries to live a normal life by marrying the beautiful Jane and having a child.
A historian by training, Barbara Erskine is the author of many bestselling novels that demonstrate her interest in both history and the supernatural, plus three collections of short stories. Her first novel, Lady of Hay, has sold over two million copies worldwide.
On the Edge of Darkness. Stunning repackage of the story of a woman trapped in the wrong time. Abandoned by her twentieth century lover, she plots a terrible revenge on him and his family. Adam Craig is fourteen when, near an isolated Celtic stone in the wild Scottish Highlands, he meets Brid, whose exotic, gypsy-like dress and strange attitudes fascinate him. They become friends, then, in time, passionate lovers.
After a broken love affair, biographer Kate Kennedy retires to a remote cottage on the wild Essex coast to work on her new book until her landlord's daughter uncovers a Roman site nearby and long-buried passions are unleashed! In her lonely cottage, Kate is terrorized by mysterious forces. What do these ghosts want?
Another good book by Barbara Erskine. I found it quite different from her other books. I have read all of Barbara Erskine's books and enjoyed them all thoroughly. I particularly like historical novels, but the way that she writes makes a book 'un-put-downable'.
Another good book by Barbara Erskine. Some pages of the book gave me goosebumps. Pepole will love, and then hate Brid. I would recommend this book and the previous ones to anyone and can't wait for the next one!

Barbara Erskine asserts the moral right to be identified as the author of this work. After only a few minutes’ leafing half-heartedly through a book on spiders he threw it down on the table and went out onto the landing. This novel is entirely a work of fiction. The names, characters and incidents portrayed in it are the work of the author’s imagination. He listened for a moment, then he ran down the narrow upper flight of stairs, then the broader flight below and went to peer once more into the kitchen. It was as cheerless and empty as before.
