I have been a fan of Barbra Erskine for over 10 years.My first book i read was lady of Hay.I was that hooked i actually fell down my stairs to answer the front door still with bopok in my hand.
Have read all of barbra s books and i agree each and everyone would be excellent made into a film.
Need now some good tips on simalar authors as can not wait for another good read.

I have been a fan of Ms Erskine's for many years, having read Lady of Hay and Kingdom of Shadows many times over - from the age of 14, now am 33! Have read all novels and short stories, even a recent short story in The Sunday Express! Recently met Barbara at a talk and book signing which was amazing. For those looking for similar novels - Labrynth by Kate Mosse is a great read.

I read Lady Of Hay and was HOOKED. Absolutely the most skillfully constructed book I had ever read. From then on I watched eagerly for each new title and have read every one. I am now 3/4 of the way through Daughters Of Fire

Like everyone who posts here, I have read all the novels of Barbara Erskine and my favourite is Lady of Hay which I read three times!! I also love Kingdom of Shadows.
I'm reading Child of the Phoenix which I simply can't put the book down!
I'm sure that you'll enjoy Diana Gabaldon's series of Outlander! I'm completely in love with Jamie Fraser!
I have just ordered Daughters of Fire and I can't wait to read it!

Hi to all Barbara Erskin fans I have just started reading daughters of fire
and i have to say once again Barabra has excelled herself can you belive she came to my local library to do a signing of her new book and i missed it. I also agree her books would make wonderfull films but maybe she wants her readers to expand there own imagination

Have only recently started reading her books, the first one was Lady of Hay and wow, as has been said I couldn't put it down!! Have since read Midnight is a lonely place and House of Echoes, just started On the edge of Darkness. My hubby doesn't like reading so I would love some of her books to be made into films so he can see them. I am on the edge of my seat each time I read her books, amazing!!

I have read, and bought, all of Ms Erskines books. I re-read them too! They are just as good second time round. I confess to being a bit selfish as I don't lend books out as they are my version of wealth! Thanks to those who recommend similar authors. I have found it hard to find authors who write in a similar vein. The closest I came to was "Quiet Earth" by Elizabeth Harris. I hope Ms Erskine continues to write for a long time yet. she has a gift that would be a great shame to waste.

Absolutely amazing books! First book I read was LADY OF HAY. I just couldnīt put the book down, the story "pulled me in". I have read all BARBARA ERSKINEīS books and canīt wait for the new one. I have tried to look for authors who write similar things and I could recommend PETER JAMES who writes thrillers with supernatural elements. I would say that SWEET HEART, TWILIGHT and PROPHECY are his best. Others are awesome too, of course! Could someone recommend other authors?

I'm glad to anounce this: we completed a short film called 'Christmas Present'
which was adapted from Barbara Erskine's short story 'Guests' from the book 'Encounters'. Thank you very much to Barbara Erskine who gave me permissinon to do it. Reagards...
