Product description

Product Description

Pompeii was once a bustling port nestling under a forbidding mountain. Then in AD79, the mountain erupted, smothering the town under a thick blanket of ash and volcanic debris, leaving it lost for centuries. Now, rediscovered and a world renowned heritage site, archaeologists from across the globe yearn for an opportunity to uncover the town's past. Some things though, are best left alone - revealing the secrets hidden beneath the stones could prove perilous.

Eighteen months have passed since Hannah and Max left Masada, Herod's isolated fortress in the Judaean desert. The place where, just as they admitted their feelings for each other, they were wrenched apart. Hannah slipped into an ancient world, discovering how her ancestor had received the ruby clasp - her talisman. Somehow she survived the ensuing tragedy and Max's love was strong enough to bring her home. Since then, Hannah has had no awareness of her ancient counterpart and wonders whether the slender thread that united them had been broken, lost beyond time, leaving only a memory.

On a spur of the moment trip to Rome, familiar dreams recur. Unable to recognise where her ancestor is, but realising that she is not on Masada, Hannah struggles to understand the reason behind her visions. Then, a chance meeting with two friends sees Hannah and Max invited to join an excavation team, one whose goal is to determine what lies beneath the ruins of Pompeii. Although excited to be a part of such an investigation, Hannah experiences a growing sense of unease, an unnamed fear circling at the edges of her consciousness.

Her worlds begin to converge and Hannah realises to her horror, that her fear, this reconnection of minds, must be related to Vesuvius and that the woman she is bound to was actually in Pompeii before the eruption. Hoping she can somehow warn her ancestor without being drawn back into her other life, Hannah tries to convey her knowledge through her dreams.

As before however, fate intervenes. After entering a house which bears a Hebrew inscription, Hannah falls back through time. Although familiar with this fusion of souls, she still has to rely on her instincts to adjust to life in ancient Pompeii. A world where her ancestor is a physician to gladiators engaged in mortal combat, where riotous mobs run amok and where a ghost from the past returns to haunt her. All the while knowing she needs to save her family from the devastation that will befall this town.

Will Hannah escape the cataclysmic eruption? Can she persuade her loved ones to flee before burning debris engulfs the town? Will she ever find her way back to Max the love of her life waiting, not so patiently, millennia away? Or will echoes be all that remain?

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL BOOK! 3 April 2016
By Avid Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Rosie Chapel does it again! Only this time in Pompeii. She obviously knows her history and weaves it in the plot in such a way that she masterfully paints a picture of the past. I could almost see Emperor Claudius' new harbor. It was a fun read! I hope that the author will be coming out with a third book soon!
5.0 out of 5 stars Second in 'The Hannah's Heirloom Series' 13 February 2017
By Brian Kitchen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
The second book in ‘The Hannah’s Heirloom’ series, ‘Echoes of Stone and Fire’ continues the story of Hannah Wilson who is left a family heirloom by her grandmother, an ancient ruby clasp said to have been given to an ancestor at the Roman siege of the Jewish citadel of Masada. The events in this novel take place 18 months after Hannah and Max left the excavations at Masada. Whilst on holiday in Rome they are invited to the excavations taking place at Pompeii.
Once again Hannah’s world begins to merge with that of her ancestor also named Hannah, Maxentius, now her husband has been posted to Pompeii to command the garrison there taking Hannah, their daughter Claudia and their extended family with him. The modern-day Hannah realises they are in Pompeii only months before the cataclysmic eruption of Mount Vesuvius and knows that somehow, she must warn her ancestor of this.
I won’t spoil the book for potential readers by giving anymore of the plot away, but will only say that I was engrossed in it. Rosie Chapel has researched the period very well and is a very talented writer. I can thoroughly recommend the book and am very much looking forward to reading the last novel in the trilogy
