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?

Moving through three time periods, this story resonates through the ages with people that come alive in each era. As each story progresses mysteries are revealed about the Suffolk area and the history that shaped it. Meanwhile a ghost Viking ship glides gloomily through the mist on the river, propelling fear before it.

A supernatural mystery slash romance that weaves Anglo Saxon, Victorian, and present day storylines quite effectively. However, several of the characters were extremely unlikeable and the ending was quite predictable which kept me from really enjoying this book as much as I have other Erskine titles.
