Staff Reviews


Evangeline and her sister Lizzie are on their way to the
Silk Road and Kashgar as lady missionaries under the supervision of Millicent,
a zealous woman intent on converting the locals.  Evangeline brought along
her bicycle, a novelty in 1923.  While Lizzie is a true believer,
Evangeline is more interested in seeing the world.  Soon the women run
afoul of local custom and law. In current day Frieda is confused by a letter
informing her she is the sole heir of a stranger.  She has one week to clean
out the mystery person’s flat.  Aided by Tayeb, a homeless refugee, she
delves into the accumulation of a lifetime looking for a
connection.   This lively story has strong female characters; it is
an interesting look at the sometimes volatile intersection of differing
cultures.

“Two worlds collide with the discovery of a mysterious inheritance. On one side of the globe in the 1920s, three young women embark on an adventure along the famous Silk Road. On the other side of the world in present day London, two young strangers bond over a beautiful illustration with a history. Decades of family tradition and mystery become unraveled as the stories come crashing together.”
