Will delight her fans! Where We Belong by Lynn Austin
about the book....
Join Two Incomparable Sisters on Adventures That Span the Decades And Cross the Globe
In the city of Chicago in 1892, the rules and expectations for Victorian women are strict, their roles in life limited. But sisters Rebecca and Flora Hawes are not typical Victorian ladies. Their love of adventure and their desire to use their God-given talents have taken them out of society ballrooms and delivered them to the Sinai Desert--and into the teeth of a sandstorm.
Accompanied by Soren Petersen, their somber young butler, and Kate Rafferty, a plucky street urchin learning to be their ladies' maid, the two women are on a quest across the desert chasing rumors of an important biblical manuscript.
As the expedition becomes ever more dangerous and uncertain, all four travelers sift through memories and adventures of their past, recalling the events that shaped them and the journeys and providence that brought them to this very time and place.
As per usual, Austin has succeeded at creating a novel that will transport readers back in time, a book so deftly written that readers will feel like they are living the adventure along with the characters themselves. I award this book a solid rating and give it 4 out of 5 stars. Fans of Austin will surely be pleased with this one!
