Description

Two Women, Eight Hundred Years, and the Destiny They Share “Barbara Erskine can make us feel the cold, smell the filth, and experience some of the fear of the power of evil men…The author’s storytelling talent is undeniable.” —Times of London With a story as mesmerizing as it is chilling, Lady of Hay explores how Jo, a journalist investigating hypnotic regression, plunges into the life of Matilda, Lady of Hay—who lived eight hundred years earlier. As she learns of Matilda’s unhappy marriage, her troubled love for Richard de Clare, and the brutal treatment she received from King John, it seems that Jo’s past and present are hopelessly entwined. Centuries later, a story of secret passion and unspeakable treachery is about to begin again—and she has no choice but to brave both lives if she wants to shake the iron grip of history. “So well researched and so well written that it is almost impossible to put down. The novel has everything that readers of racy fiction could ask for: beautiful characters, exotic settings, and passion...situations and characters that are so completely convincing that they come to life.” —Philadelphia Inquirer “Told with hair-raising intensity, this is a gripping tale.” —Daily News “Barbara Erskine is a superb storyteller.” —Los Angeles Daily News “Fascinating, absorbing, original—all such praise comes easily when describing Barbara Erskine’s Lady of Hay. But perhaps the most suitable word is hypnotic.” —She What Readers are Saying “A classic in its own right.” “An extraordinary story of time travel at its best.” “The most unputdownable book I have ever come across.” Barbara Erskine is a historian and internationally bestselling author of Lady of Hay as well as Time’s Legacy, Kingdom of Shadows, Encounters, Child of the Phoenix, Midnight Is a Lonely Place, House of Echoes, Distant Voices, Whispers in the Sand, Hiding from the Light, and On the Edge of Darkness. Her first novel blending the historical and the supernatural catapulted her to success, and her novels have been translated into thirty languages.
