"Jess, a young teacher in London, is attacked by someone she fears knows her well. Fleeing to her sister's house in the Welsh borders to recuperate, she is disturbed by the cries of a mysterious child. Two thousand years before, the same valley is the site of a great battle between Caractacus, king of the mighty Catuvellauni tribe, and the invading Romans. The proud king is captured and taken as a prisoner to Rome with his wife and daughter, the princess Eigon. Jess is inexorably drawn to investigate Eigon's story, and as the Welsh cottage is no longer a peaceful sanctuary she determines to visit Rome. There lie the connections that will reveal Eigon's astonishing life--and which threaten to reawaken Jess's own tormentor"--Distributor's Website.

I thought this was very good. It is a book that links a current day story to a story in the past, in this case 2000 years past.
I loved the time period and loved the characters. It is really a story to get lost in. I will definitely read more by this author.

I really got involved with the characters in this book. I enjoyed the historical and the modern descriptions of Rome and Wales, and I had to keep reading to see what happened!! I am going to reserve Barbara Erskine's other books to enjoy this summer.
