Lady of Hay Synopsis

She learns of Matilda's unhappy marriage, her love for the handsome Richard de Clare, and the brutal death threats handed out by King John, before it becomes clear that Jo's past and present are inevitably entwined. She realises that eight hundred years on, Matilda's story of secret passion and unspeakable treachery is about to repeat itself...

Lady of Hay Press Reviews

'The author's storytelling talent is undeniable. Barbara Erskine can make us feel the cold, smell the filth and experience some of the fear of the power of evil men.'
The Times

'Unusual, intriguing, cleverly handled and gripping.'
The Good Book Guide

'Fascinating, absorbing, original - all such praise comes easily when describing Barbara Erskine's Lady of Hay. But perhaps the most suitable world is hypnotic.'
SHE

'Convincing and extremely colourful.'
The Mail
