Synopsis

From the bestselling author of Time’s Legacy and Lady of Hay comes a thrilling new novel, River of Destiny, an epic story that spans Anglo Saxon Britain, Victorian Suffolk and the present day. Perfect for fans of Kate Mosse’s Labyrinth. On the banks of the River Deben in Suffolk are ancient barns dating back to Anglo Saxon times – within these walls lie secrets that have been buried for centuries. New arrivals Zoe and Ken move into one of the converted barns, ready to start a life away from the hustle and bustle of the city. To the outside world they seem happy, but they are growing further apart by the day. Meanwhile the strange presence Zoe feels within their home and the ghostly shapes she sees through the cloying mists on the river are getting harder to ignore. Nearby, farmers are ploughing the land beside the river and human bones are found. Are they linked to the Victorian tragedy the locals whisper about? The secret of the grassy mound has remained untouched through history, but now that it’s been disturbed, will there be devastating consequences?

A good story of ghostly goings on set in Suffolk in the present, interweaved with two sub-stories of what has happened at the same place in ancient and more recent history to cause the mysterious events.

Didn't feel the sub stories linked well.I thought the ending was a bit of an anti climax.

Typical Barbara Erskine story line set in a picturesque location. Very atmospheric descriptions of the River which make you believe that the characters could see ghostly long ships . Would have enjoyed the book more if the historical content had been greater but a pleasant way to escape for a few hours without having to tax the grey matter to much.
