February 2011 Book of the Month.
This skilfully crafted and beautifully structured book deals with a series of complex issues - religion, witchcraft, atheism, feminism and individual human complexities – within a narrative thread that is easy to follow and hard to put down. It is a book by a woman and, primarily, about a woman, but it is by no means ‘a woman’s book’. The themes are historic, universal and perhaps fundamental. A brilliant read.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright
Time's Legacy by Barbara Erskine
Ancient secrets buried deep in Glastonbury's past. And one woman's quest to finally set them free. Cambridge present day: Following the death of her mother, Abi Rutherford receives a mysterious bequest -- a misshapen sphere of crystal known as the Serpent's Stone which seems to hold echoes of concealed mysteries, long covered up by the church. Western England 25AD: A stranger has come to the chilly Somerset wetlands, with a story of hope and reconciliation. But he is being followed by powerful forces, determined that he will not undermine Roman rule in Britain. What connects these ancient events and Abi's gift? And why do so many people seem desperate to hide the truth? A strange shadow has fallen across the centuries, and a woman is in fear of her life. But is it danger that awaits her, or the final truth so long whispered across the echoes of time?
