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 lady's 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.

"Lynn Austin has a remarkable talent for immersing readers in her novels, no matter the setting, theme or genre. She achieves this again with her latest story of two Victorian sisters who have spent the last thirty years snubbing societal expectations. . . . Austin deftly lays out the pieces of each character's puzzle in the present day and completes the picture by adding layers from the past. "--RT Book Reviews
