Great excitement this week when a big box of books was delivered to the door. For the first time, I held a copy of Time’s Echo in my hand, and I don’t mind telling you it was a wobbly moment, part thrill and part terror.
But here it is at last!
I’ve just moved my blog here from WordPress (I couldn’t get on there at all!) and I’ll be talking a bit more about Time’s Echo over the next few weeks. There’ll be extracts to read as well as snippets about my research into everyday life in Elizabethan England.
In the meantime, here’s a taste of the story from the blurb while I’m getting myself organised!
What if you could go back in time and live your life again? Would you know the moment you’d made the wrong decision, the tiny choice that had changed everything?
York 1577: Hawise Aske smiles at a stranger in the market and sets in train a story of obsession and jealousy, of love and hate and warped desire. Hawise pays a high price for that smile, but for a girl like her in Elizabethan York, there is nowhere to go, and nowhere to hide.
Over 400 years later, Grace Trewe is still trying to outrun her memories of the Boxing Day tsunami. Her stay in York is meant to be a brief one. But in York Grace discovers that time can twist and turn in ways she never imagined, and as she is drawn into Hawise’s life, she discovers just how powerful the past can be.
Time’s Echo is available in the UK from 30th August. Pre-order your copy here!
