Publisher's Summary

2015. Dr. Quinn Allenby thinks she’s seen it all, but when the remains of a young woman and her newborn are discovered in a cave in Cornwall, the only clue to her death is a smooth-edged hole in the top of the skull and the indisputable evidence that the victim was still alive, and possibly in labor, when the coffin was sealed. Torn between her professional commitments and her desperate need to find her missing twin, Quinn agrees to a daring plan, one that will lead to the Taliban-occupied mountains of Afghanistan and the snow-covered alps of Germany.

1620. After suffering years of abuse at the hands of her uncle, Mary takes the ultimate risk and sails for the New World, where the promise of a new life and an arranged marriage to a colonist await. Mary is determined to make her marriage a success, but her husband’s indifference drives her straight into the arms of the one man she thought she could never love.

Suspenseful!

This sixth book in the series is full of suspense as Quinn continues the search for her twin sister. Her boss and friend Rhys Morgan certainly shows his true colours in this book and my respect for him improves tenfold! Plus every woman should have a husband as patient and devoted as Gabe. Mary’s story is terribly tragic to say the least. As usual the book left me anxious to learn more about what happens in the next instalment. Of course Wendy Wolfson does a superb job with the narration. I received a free copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily provided an unbiased review.

Always an exciting new case for Quinn to solve!

Can't wait for Book 7 -- each book has two storylines unfolding simultaneously! As Quinn works to solve ancient mysteries using her supernatural gift, another present day plot and story is revealed. Love the characters! And love the variety of historic time periods -- all different! Keep the books coming Ms. Shapiro!

Beautiful

The series, Echoes from the Past is aptly named. Quinn is ready to solve another mystery with her supernatural gift. I love this series, it's beautifully-written, intense with dark elements. Irina Shapiro captivates the readers/listeners with her exceptional storytelling and remarkable characters. Wendy Wolfson's narration is flawless, thoroughly engaging the listeners.

Beautiful Tragedy

As with all of Ms. Shapiro's books in this series, readers know that Quinn is investigating death for the Echoes series. It's still always shocking to learn the details of the person's life whose remains are discovered. I'm glad that I'm not endowed with the gift of sight. I'd become too emotionally involved in the victim's story. I can't wait to see what's in store for Quinn's newly discovered family members.

The Condemned

This is a fantastic series. Quinn an archeologist works with dicovering what happened to people in the past. In this read she goes looking for twin sister that she was seperated from after birth. This is a very riveting story with twists and turns. That captivated me from start to finish. The Narrator does a Fantastic at bringing the characters out. The Author does a fantastic job at bringing the read to fruition. I definitely recommend this listen. And the series. Shauna Joesten

another great book

I love learning some history while enjoying these books. They are all sad unfortunately and the poor girl in this story is just another tragedy of science and medicine being very misinformed. But it is the way it was hundreds of years ago. I can't get enough of Irina Shapiros books. Atleast we get happy moments in the here and now. Now on to the next one.
