9780006512097: Sands of Time

A brilliant collection of haunting tales, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Lady of Hay.

Sands of Time features two intriguing long stories that pick up the fortunes of characters from Whispers in the Sand, Barbara Erskine's captivating Egyptian novel. Still haunted by ancient mysteries, and the subject of dark intentions, Anna and Louisa must once more do battle with the past in order to survive the present.

Here, too, are a host of other tales, all with a touch of the unexpected…A happily married woman has an affair – with a man who died in the First World War…Who is the little girl on the swing in the garden – and why does only Charlotte see her?
And how can a traveller find herself transported suddenly from her airplane seat to the snowy Canadian wastes below?

Suspense, romance, passion, unexpected echoes of the past – vintage Barbara Erskine, and storytelling at its most compelling.

Review:

'Her forte is mood, atmosphere and the toe-curling frisson.' Sunday Times

‘Readers of Barbara Erskine are held in thrall’
Woman’s Realm

'Barbara Erskine's storytelling talent is undeniable' The Times

From the Publisher:

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?
