From the author of the New York Times bestseller Juliet
comes a mesmerizing novel about a young scholar who risks her
reputation—and her life—on a thrilling journey to prove that the
legendary warrior women known as the Amazons actually existed.
Oxford lecturer Diana Morgan is an expert on Greek mythology. Her
obsession with the Amazons started in childhood when her eccentric
grandmother claimed to be one herself—before vanishing without a trace.
Diana’s colleagues shake their heads at her Amazon fixation. But then a
mysterious, well-financed foundation makes Diana an offer she cannot
Traveling to North Africa, Diana teams up with Nick
Barran, an enigmatic Middle Eastern guide, and begins deciphering an
unusual inscription on the wall of a recently unearthed temple. There
she discovers the name of the first Amazon queen, Myrina, who crossed
the Mediterranean in a heroic attempt to liberate her kidnapped sisters
from Greek pirates, only to become embroiled in the most famous conflict
of the ancient world—the Trojan War. Taking their cue from the
inscription, Diana and Nick set out to find the fabled treasure that
Myrina and her Amazon sisters salvaged from the embattled city of Troy
so long ago. Diana doesn’t know the nature of the treasure, but she does
know that someone is shadowing her, and that Nick has a sinister agenda
of his own. With danger lurking at every turn, and unsure of whom to
trust, Diana finds herself on a daring and dangerous quest for truth
that will forever change her world.
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 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. Download and start listening now!
