This was a very well written book that led the reader to an unexpected climax. The story, although difficult to listen to at times, was well worth writing and reading. It is a story attempting to bring forth underlying factors leading to contemporary but incomprehensible issues that are appearing in the news at regular intervals.

Sleeper's Castle, like all of Barbara Erskine books, is an enjoyable romp between modern & historical times. There is mystery, intrigue and romance, and is probably more appealing to ladies!

A well written story about domestic violence. Gives sensitive insights & the story comes together in a satisfying ending. Some surprises but also becomes predictable at times.

Purity is an engaging story written from multiple viewpoints giving a personal voice to each character. The story revolves around a young woman seeking personal truth. Her name Purity implies youthful innocence but she isn't innocent & betrays adults twice her age. Yet, there is a goodness to her actions & the reader comes to understand that truth in life isn't about little pockets of purity but about the greater areas of grey complete with lies & betrayals!
