OUT NOW: The Sacred River by Wendy Wallace

video book trailer found on Youtube

Harriet Heron's life is almost over before it has even begun. At just twenty-three years of age, she is an invalid, over-protected and reclusive. Before it is too late, she must escape the fog of Victorian London for a place where she can breathe. Together with her devoted mother, Louisa, her god-fearing aunt, Yael, and a book of her own spells inspired by the Egyptian Book of the Dead, Harriet travels to a land where the air is tinged with rose and gold and for the first time begins to experience what it is to live. But a chance meeting on the voyage to Alexandria results in a dangerous friendship as Louisa's long-buried past returns, in the form of someone determined to destroy her by preying upon her daughter. As Harriet journeys towards a destiny no one could have foreseen, her aunt Yael is caught up in an Egypt on the brink of revolt and her mother must confront the spectres of her own youth. 

Available now in the United Kingdom, The Sacred River by Wendy Wallace. My copy should be arriving soon and stay tuned for my in-depth review! Just  a quick post for anyone looking for Victorian London setting, Egytian Mythology and Folklore in a nineteenth-century setting. Sadly, I did not find a U.S. publication date. However, I highly recommend a site I use all the time to order my International books which is very affordable. ..,
