Beneath a Burning Sky

A gripping mystery and a beautiful love story that ticks all the boxes

´Exotic and mysterious - I was gripped by this complex tale´
Dinah Jefferies, author of number one bestselling The Tea Planter´s Wife

A beautiful and heart-wrenching story of love and betrayal, set against a backdrop of British-occupied Egypt. Perfect for fans of Victoria Hislop, Dinah Jefferies and Leah Fleming.

When twenty-two-year-old Olivia is coerced into marriage by the cruel Alistair Sheldon she leaves England for Egypt, his home and the land of her own childhood. Reluctant as she is to go with Alistair, it´s in her new home that she finds happiness in surprising places: she is reunited with her long-estranged sister, Clara, and falls - impossibly and illicitly - in love with her husband´s boarder, Captain Edward Bertram.

Then Clara is abducted from one of the busiest streets in the city. Olivia is told it´s thieves after ransom money, but she´s convinced there´s more to it. As she sets out to discover what´s happened to the sister she´s only just begun to know, she falls deeper into the shadowy underworld of Alexandria, putting her own life, and her chance at a future with Edward, the only man she´s ever loved, at risk. Because, determined as Olivia is to find Clara, there are others who will stop at nothing to conceal what´s become of her . . .

Beneath a Burning Sky is a novel of secrets, betrayal and, above all else, love. Set against the heat and intrigue of colonial Alexandria, this beautiful and heart-wrenching story will take your breath away.
