Join the Great Adventure!
Let’s face it, Lynn Austin is one talented writer. Her Refiner’s series is still one of my favorite of all time. No one can spin a story quite like Austin. So when I was give the opportunity to read her latest release, Where We Belong, I didn’t hesitate. And for reason. It’s another phenomenal Austin hit.
Set in the 1800s, Where We Belong tells the story of two sisters, Rebecca and Flora. Rebecca is fiercely independent, loves God, and loves a good adventure. Flora is more reserved, but has similar values, a heart for the poor, and is always being roped into another exploit with her sister.
Their current trip lands them in the Sinai Desert, in the middle of a sandstorm, with their straight-laced butler Petersen, and their street-kid-turned-lady’s-maid Kate. They’re on the hunt for an ancient manuscript…will they reach their destination? What peril awaits them? Can they find their way back?
I was given Where We Belong in exchange for my honest review. True to form, Lynn Austin has crossed every “t” and dotted every “i.” The story is woven together beautifully. The author places layer upon layer within the story to create depth, richness, and intrigue. The characters are complicated, realistic, and winsome. I particularly enjoyed Rebecca’s character, as she is not your typical prim and proper 1800s lady. This is yet another win for Austin – and a must-read to add to your TBR pile!
