The eagerly awaited new novel by the author of 'Lady of Hay' and 'House of Echoes' is the chilling story of a woman from the sixth century trapped in the wrong time by jealousy and vengeance.

Adam Craig is fourteen when, near an isolated Celtic stone in the wild Scottish Highlands, he meets Brid, whose exotic, gypsy-like dress and strange attitudes fascinate him. They become friends, then, in time, passionate lovers.

In her obsession with Adam and her need to travel through time to be with him, she is seen as a traitor by her people, only escaping death by following Adam to Edinburgh when he leaves home to study medicine.
As time passes Adam makes new friends and finds new love. When Brid finally tracks him down, she is consumed by a violent rage that knows no bounds. For fifty years, from Scotland to England and then to Wales, Brid will haunt Adam like and evil shadow. It is only Adam’s granddaughter Beth, who will help him discover the secret that will free them from the terror of Brid’s curse.
