Beneath a Burning Sky: A thrilling mystery. An epic love story.

    By

    ***THE KINDLE BETSELLER*** 'Beautifully described . . . A moving love story' Tracy Rees 'Exotic and mysterious - I was gripped by this complex tale' Dinah Jefferies 'Exquisitely written . . . unputdownable and unforgettable' Iona Grey Beneath a Burning Sky is a beautiful and gripping story of love, betrayal and mystery, set against the heat and intrigue of colonial Alexandria. Perfect for fans of Kate Furnivall, Dinah Jefferies and Victoria Hislop. ********************** Central Alexandria, June 1891 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. This beautiful and heart-wrenching story will take your breath away. Further praise for Jenny Ashcroft: 'A summer must-read.' Red 'If sweeping historical epic romances mixed with chilling suspense, a dash of mystery and set in lush locations are your thing then you are in for a real treat.' Amazon reviewer, 5***** 'This story of twists and turns transcends era and genre. Absolutely brilliant.' Kerry Fisher 'I was immediately drawn in and couldn't put it down, instantly absorbed into the mystery and intrigue. An utterly breathtaking read, thoroughly researched and with characters I couldn't stop thinking about.' Amazon reviewer, 5***** 'First-class writing, brilliant characters, fascinating locations and gripping plots.' Tracy Buchanan
