Description

Young Oxford scholar Diana Morgan is obsessed with tales of ancient Amazonian warrior women. When a well-financed foundation makes an offer to fund a research expedition, she sees an opportunity to solve the mysteries that have haunted her for years. Along with her enigmatic guide, Nick Barran, she embarks on a thrilling quest to discover the truth behind the myths. But when Diana and Nick decipher an unusual inscription about Myrina, the first Amazon Queen, on the wall of a recently unearthed temple, their journey takes a daring and dangerous turn. Someone or something is shadowing their movements, and Nick may have a sinister agenda of his own. Sweeping from England to North Africa to Greece and the ruins of ancient Troy, and navigating between present and past, The Lost Sisterhood is a breathtaking, passionate and grand adventure of two women on parallel journeys, separated by time, who must fight to keep the lives and legacy of the Amazons from being lost forever. Praise for The Lost Sisterhood: 'Compulsively readable, mystical and heroic, this is a novel that will capture your interest, your imagination, and your heart.' M. J. Rose, author of The Book of Lost Fragrances 'A spellbinding adventure, a tale of two courageous women separated by millennia but pursuing interwoven quests: one to protect and lead her sisters through a dangerous ancient world, the other to prove that the legendary tribe of women truly existed, and that their legacy endures.' Jennifer Chiaverini, author of Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker and The Spymistress 'Grounded in a thorough knowledge of classical literature, this skillful interweaving of plausible archaeological speculation, ancient mythology, and exciting modern adventure will delight fans of such authors as Kate Mosse and Katherine Neville.'
