With its dark legends and passionate history, the windswept shores of Scotland are an archaeologist's dream. Verity Grey is thrilled by the challenge of uncovering an ancient Roman campsite in a small Scottish village. But as soon as she arrives, she sense danger in the air. Her eccentric boss, Peter Quinnell, has spent his whole life searching for the resting place of the lost Ninth Roman Legion and is convinced he's finally found it - not because of any scientific evidence, but because a local boy has 'seen' a Roman soldier walking in the fields, a ghostly sentinel who guards the bodies of his long-dead comrades. Surprisingly, Verity believes in Peter, and the boy, and even in the Sentinel, who seems determined to become her own protector... but from what?

"Susanna Kearsley's best book... A brilliant book!" (thebookseller.com)
Susana Kearsley is one of my favourite authors. The reader has a beautiful voice and I loved her delivery; she could read anything and make it sound lovely.
Once again another beautifully told love story. Sally Armstrong captures her characters personalities well. Susanna catches you up the the romance without you realizing it.
"The Shadowy Horses"
This is the worst book I have had from Audible. Only managed to get half way through. At least I fell adleep quickly at night when listening to it. Just did not have any appeal for me.
