Publisher's Summary

An historian by training, Barbara Erskine is the author of three collections of short stories, and eleven bestselling novels that demonstrate her interest in both history and the supernatural. Lady of Hay, her first novel, has now sold over two million copies worldwide. She lives with her family in an ancient manor house near Colchester, and a cottage near Hay-on-Wye. Erskine returns with this beautiful and haunting tale of dark forces and mystical powers.
In present-day Cambridge, Abi, a recently ordained priest of the Church of England, is appointed to a notoriously difficult parish. The priest in charge is the charismatic but fundamentalist Kier.

It was all right - I'd recommend better


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

just got a bit long winded towards the end, especially the present tense [the ghosty bit was better!]


Which character – as performed by Janice Mackenzie – was your favorite?

I thought she was a good narrator, making the men and women different and with a variety of English accents


Was Time’s Legacy worth the listening time?

Yes - i still like Barbara Erskine's ideas and especially the way she flipped in and out of times
