9780002257862: Sands of Time

A brilliant new collection of haunting tales, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of HIDING FROM THE LIGHT

Two intriguing long stories following the fortunes of the characters from Barbara Erskine's bestselling novel, Whispers in the Sand, head this captivating collection.

'A Legacy of Isis' finds Louisa Shelley, years after her fateful visit to Egypt, still haunted by ancient mysteries, and once again the focus of the sorcerer Roger Carstairs's dark intentions. He is determined to possess both Louisa and the precious artefact she brought back – can she find the strength to resist him? Meanwhile, in 'The Sands of Time', Anna, the modern-day heroine of Whispers in the Sand finds that she, too, is drawn back inexorably to the past…

Here, too, are ghost stories, mysteries and love stories: a happily married woman on holiday in France is surprised by her feelings for a ghost from the First World War… Newly pregnant Roz relives a tragic love story from long ago… A quiet divorcée finds that it takes more than a makeover to reveal her destiny… Who is the little ghost girl on the swing in the old orchard? And how can a traveller be transported suddenly from her seat on a plane, to the snowy Canadian wastes below?
