Praise for Sarah Maine:
An echo of Daphne du Maurier
Maine writes beautifully about the wilderness
Maine reworks the conventions of historical romance in a narrative that regularly undercuts expectations of what is to come
Worth reading for its occasional streaks of brilliance and insight
An intriguing and mesmerising story by the brilliant Sarah Maine
A captivating tale of a brutal betrayal that eerily harks back to an ancient wrong, and of a love determined to defy the constraints of time. A most enjoyable read!
The Awakenings is an epic timeslip story that had me spell-bound from start to finish . . . I simply couldn't put it down - brilliant!
In this absorbing and evocative novel, Maine weaves a compelling tale of love, power and betrayal that echoes through the centuries . . . An engaging and immersive novel, featuring a little-known period of British history, with two vibrant and sympathetic women at its heart.
The reader is plunged in two vividly drawn worlds as the author takes us back in time to Yorkshire in 1890 and 790, skilfully inter-weaving the stories of two women as they struggle against the constraints and very real dangers of society across the centuries. The Awakenings is a haunting and compelling mystery.
