Sands of Time - Barbara Erskine

It was good to find out what happened to the characters from Whispers in the Sand but I have to agree with Julie on preferring to have those two short stories added to the main book to round that story off better.

It's a good "by the bed" book for when you're tired - one story is easily read before you nod off - but I much prefer her full-length novels to really get into a story. Just as a side note: I found that one thing that is very noticeable through the stories is the recurring theme of damaged and/or broken relationships...... which made me realise it also recurs in some of her main books too. Just makes me wonder.....

Book is registered with Book Crossing and will be going to a new home shortly. :0)

Was the ending to the other what you expected Karan??

Karan could I please have the chance to read it?

I liked the end to Louisa's story but thought the other was still left open ended, as far as Carstairs goes, & couldn't help being slightly disappointed with that. Not quite what I expected but glad it ultimately had a happy ending though. :0)

I think I 'd ike to try one of her books as I haven't ever read one so I shall look out at the library as I am on my last book and can't be without one!
