Waiting for minimum critic reviews


England at the time of Edward III — a time when marriageable daughters were welcome currency in the plans of ambitious men.

In the Sussex village of Mayfield, the young and beautiful Oriel de Sharndene has been forced into marriage with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s brother though she loves a handsome Gascon squire.

Yet all is not as it seems, for these are three people who have not only met in another life but are fated to meet again and again.

From medieval England to the witch hunts of the seventeenth century and the smuggling and highwaymen of the eighteenth, TO SLEEP NO MORE is an unforgettable tale of three characters whose souls can not rest until their final destiny has been resolved.

Deryn Lake started to write stories at the age of five then graduated to novels but destroyed all her early work because, she says, it was hopeless. A chance meeting with one of the Getty family took her to Sutton Place and her first serious novel was born. Deryn was married to a journalist and writer, the late L. F. Lampitt, has two grown-up children and lives in Mayfield, Sussex, with two large cats. She is also the author of ‘Sutton Place’, ‘The King’s Women’ and ‘Pour The Dark Wine’.
