Publisher's Summary

The brand-new gripping historical novel from the Sunday Times best-selling author of Lady of Hay!

Mercia, 788 AD

In the grand Saxon halls of Mercia, King Offa rules with cold ambition. His youngest daughter, Eadburh, is destined for an arranged marriage, but with reckless spirit, her heart is taken by a Welsh prince, a man she can never be matched with and who is quickly and cruelly taken from her.

Eadburh inherited her father’s ruthless ways, but it’s the gifts passed down from her mother that are far more dangerous. She is determined to carve her own place in the world, yet her path could cause war.

Offa’s Dyke, 2021

In a cottage hidden amongst the misty Welsh hills of Offa’s Dyke, Bea Dalloway is called to help Simon Armstrong, who is searching for peace. Instead he finds himself disturbed by unsettling noises and visions.

It isn’t long before Bea is also swept up by haunting dreams. The past is whispering to them, calling out for the truth to be told at last. And as dreams and reality weave closer together, Bea and Simon must be strong to resist the pull of the past—and its desire for revenge....

The Sunday Times best-selling author returns with a thrilling tale of lost love, betrayal and secrets that have lain buried over a thousand years....

Critic Reviews

“Barbara Erskine is an astonishingly good writer. I have always been a massive fan and admirer of her talent. I feel that she has written this book especially for me. It has everything I love, and is so compelling I drop everything to get back to it. Warmth, depth, mystery, magic and the supernatural, I’m just so excited to be engrossed in such a beautiful book!" (Santa Montefiore, best-selling author)

"A dazzling roller-coaster of a book that will thrill, enchant and intrigue those who love history and the supernatural." (Alison Weir, best-selling author)

"The story of Eadburh is brilliantly imagined and the novel is so atmospheric and suspenseful, full of myth and magic and hauntings...such vivid and well-rounded characters. Wild Wales and the contrasting ordered life of the Cathedral are beautifully evoked, too." (Rachel Hore, best-selling author)

Spellbinding

As always a mesmerizing story, unputdownable. It never seems to amaze me how Barbara is able to make the reader think they're living the story. My first Erskine novel was Lady of Hay & since then I have not been able to miss a book, searching to see when the next one is out. I'm obsessed. Thank you Barbara for your amazing story telling, it's so good retreating into one of your books.

Extraordinary

My discovery of Barbara Erskine began with The Lady Of Hay. I still, proudly, have the First Paperback, from many, many years ago.
Dream Weavers, continues my love affair with all of Ms Erskine books.
Dream Weavers fulfils all one has come to expect from this Author.
Love, Intrigue, Beguiling and Mystery.
Felt completely replete when I finished the novel. My sincere Thanks to Barbara Erskine.

another standout

Barbara Erskine always writes a good story that hooks you right from the beginning. This one is no different. The general broad outline of someone from the present getting haunted by characters from the past may be common in all Ms Erskine's books but the stories surrounding the central premise are fresh and the characters so well written it doesn't matter. The narration is masterful. thank you for another book of amazing characters, gorgeous scenery and fantastic entertainment.
