Publisher's Summary

1588. When Rafael de Silva’s ship is smashed on the rocks off the coast of Ireland, he must find a way to get by without access to any resources or help from the locals, since being apprehended will result in certain death for a soldier of the ill-fated Spanish Armada. Terrified and half starved, Rafael gets help from an unexpected source, but safety is just an illusion, and love is a liability when Rafael’s very survival depends on keeping the secret of his birth from being discovered by those closest to him.

2015. Called upon to unearth the remains of a brutal crucifixion, Quinn must delve into the aftermath of the Spanish Armada’s fateful defeat, but as she tries to decipher the secret the victim took to his grave, she discovers that there are secrets much closer to home, and that the twin sister she couldn’t wait to be reunited with is not quite what she expected.

Another good one by Irina Shapiro!

I enjoyed this audible book. Wendy Wolfson does a good job as usual narrating. Quinn and her gift makes for another great story.

The Betrayed

Wow I love this series. Quinn an Archeologist works with Reese to find the stories of Remains they find. The Author has done a fantastic job at bringing this series to fruition. I would love to see it on netflix. The Narrator really brings the characters to life. I felt I was right there living vicariously through them. This is definitely a more than 5 star listen.

Haunting and Entertaining

In 2005, Dr. Quinn Allenby unearthed a crucified skeleton in Ireland. Among the bones and dirt is a hamsa charm, a protective amulet often often used by Muslims. She can't figure out how a Muslim would have found his way to Ireland and what led to the crucifixion.
 In 1588, the Spanish Armada ship Rafael de Silva was sailing on crashes on the rocky coasts of Ireland. With limited English, a hidden hamsa, and wounded comrades, he's trapped in hostile territory with no way home. And as the Protestant English forces progress into Catholic Ireland, protecting his identity becomes more vital than ever.
 While trying to learn more about Rafael, Quinn is mired in mysteries in the present day as well. Her long lost sister isn't lost anymore, not physically at least. But as Quinn pushes to get closer to Jo, Jo begins to run before her own past catches up to her. The secrets never end for poor Quinn, although she'll do anything to set things right.
 As always, I need a breather after each of Shapiro's books. Not since Outlander has a series so completely set the bar for what a good book is. Each installment is so deliciously dark, but still makes you hope for just once, things won't be as bad as Quinn's skeletons make them out to be.
 Quinn is completely lovable. Kind, selfless, and always eager to see the best in people, she's never prepared for those close to her to betray her. Every book, I root for things in her life to go east on her, just once, and things always seem to just fall apart in both the past and present.

Intriguing!

Another intriguing book in this amazing series. The historical content was interesting and the story emotional. We also learn more about Quinn’s family and her twin sister. I like how the characters in this series are well developed and realistic, not perfect but understandable. Once again I am anxious to hear what will happen next with Gabe and Quinn. Wendy Wolfson always does such a wonderful job with the narration bringing the story to life. I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily provided an unbiased review.

Wow!!

This “chapter” in the Echoes from the Past Series is jam-packed with unexpected surprises both in Quinn’s present life and in the story of the crucified remains she is “researching.” I absolutely love this series and highly recommend it to anyone who likes suspense stories set in both the present and the past. Wendy Wolfson, the narrator, does an excellent job in bringing this story to life. I’m anxiously awaiting the next book in this series!! I voluntarily reviewed this after receiving a free copy.
