The Egyptian Years – Elizabeth Harris
In 1892, the newly married and vivacious Genevieve Montsorrel disappeared into the Egyptian desert. Only her parasol was ever found — the circumstances surrounding her disappearance, and assumed death, were never explained.
A century later, Willa Jamieson comes into the possession of a trunk of Genevieve’s possessions. Hidden in a secret compartment she finds Genevieve’s diary…which holds the key to her secret life and her sadistic husband, her strength and her ability to survive everything life threw at her.
As she’s drawn further and further into the diary, Willa realises that it might just hold the answers to what really happened to Genevieve Montsorrel…
