Where We Belong

In the year 1892, the principles; that is the manners and customs for Victorian women were strict and their roles were limited.   It was frowned upon for ladies to further their education but for the Hawes sisters, things were different.  Their love for adventure and their search for God's purpose in their lives leads them on an adventure of a lifetime to the Sinai Desert. 

On a quest to find an important biblical manuscript, joined by their butler and ladies maid Kate, the four find themselves on a journey that is dangerous and uncertain; the four travelers find themselves looking back at their past and the events that help shape them into who they are and what brought them to this point in their lives.

Author Lynn Austin has done a wonderful job of research.  She has written this novel from the inspiration taken from the true story of twin sisters Agnes and Margret Smith; who were born in Scotland in 1843.

This novel was a joy to read and hard to put down.  The characters were very easy to relate to and the storyline was fascinating. 

I truly enjoyed every aspect of this story, the determination of the ladies, to the principles they stood up for and their love for God.

This is an exceptional read and anyone who loves historical fiction will truly enjoy this.
