9780007170234: Sands of Time

A spine-tingling collection of haunting tales, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of HIDING FROM THE LIGHT A spine-tingling collection of haunting tales, from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Hiding from the Light. Sands of Time features two intriguing 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. Alongside these 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 does a traveller find herself transported suddenly from her airplane seat to the snowy Canadian wasteland below? Suspense, romance, passion, unexpected echoes of the past - vintage Barbara Erskine, and storytelling at its most compelling.
