  • Mesmerising

    A historian, Simon Armstrong, rents a cottage near Offa's Dyke in Hereford, on the border between Wales and England to write a book on the local area. He hears the haunting cry of 'Elise' in the evenings and when his teenage children come to stay for a holiday, they also hear it. The local Canon Treasurer's wife, Bea Halloway, based at Hereford Cathedral, who has studied the paranormal and has some experience, agrees to help the unsettled Armstrong family. A wonderful story unfolds that threatens to overcome those seeking to uncover it. The two female protagonists are both really strong characters, separated by time but linked by gifts they both possess. Bea lives in present-day Hereford and Eadburh in eighth-century Mercia. I soon became totally invested in the atmospheric storyline following Eadburh from the court of her Father, King Offa of Mercia to the kingdom of Wessex and Charlemagne. As reality and dreams interweave a love story is told between Eadburh and Elisedd, a Welsh prince who met at Offa's Dyke. Bea assists Simon in finding the source of mysterious sounds and cries that come from the garden of the cottage he is staying in, and the ghostly presence that is distracting him from his work researching the history of Offa's Dyke, little realising the effect it will have on everyone involved, including herself. Dangers lurk in the shadows that threaten to engulf them all. The period has evidently been well researched by the author and makes for mystical and extremely compulsive reading. A mesmerising tale of revenge and resentment. I read The Dream Weavers in staves with other Pigeonholers as part of a group. A special thank you to Barbara Erskine and The Pigeonhole for a complimentary copy of this novel at my request. This review is my unbiased opinion.

  • Dream Weavers

    I enjoyed this book however I am spoiled by her first book Lady of Hay and haven’t found her subsequent books to be as good as it in my opinion. Erskine is a great weaver of time and place and history.

  • Drew me in and couldn't put it down

    I always love Barbara Erskine's books and this book was no different. Just as the character Bea couldn't keep away from the unfolding story, neither could I stop reading this book. I just had to keep finding out what happened next.

    Thanks for your feedback!
