Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Time’s Legacy and Lady of Hay comes her thrilling new novel River of Destiny.
On the banks of the River Deben in Suffolk lies a set of barns dating back to the Anglo Saxons. Within their walls, secrets have been buried deeply. Zoe and Ken have just moved into one of the barns, ready to start a new life away from the hustle and bustle of the city. To the outside world they seem like an ordinary couple, but underneath they are growing more distant by the day. And when Zoe becomes close to local recluse, Leo, she finds her attraction to him undeniable.
Whilst farmers are ploughing the land surrounding the barns, sets of human bones are found and when the police arrive it becomes clear that the bones are much older than first suspected…. From an ancient burial ground to a Victorian murder, Erskine will have you gripped to her every word as the mystery unfolds.

Romantic Entertainment With Suspense

Where does River of Destiny rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The audiobook is an interesting and entertaining experience ... Although engaging, the book does not provoke deeper thoughts or lasting impression... It is, however, amongst the most entertaining books I have listened to so far.

What other book might you compare River of Destiny to and why?

The Book isn't as good as The Lady of Hay but is similarly structured.

Which character – as performed by Gina Peach – was your favorite?

I didn't really have a favourite, but I found Gina conveyed a variety of characters very effectively.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, it just was good entertainment.

Spoiled by the narrator

I love Barbara Eskine and had been waiting for this for a while, but i so wish i had bought the written version. The story is excellent but this narrator ran one section into another - barely drawing breath and when you are changing time zones you really need at least a short pause in between. Often taken by surprise by scene and character changes because of this, then taking a few seconds to get back on course with the story , sometimes winding back to clarify at which point the change had happened. Reading was flat and boring. Such a shame because as always Barbara Erskine has written an excellent tale.

Barbara Erskine at her best

I love the mix of real and ghostly in Barbara Erskines books. This keeps you on your toes.
