This summer Wind Across the Nile will be published. I’m excited to finally be able to get this book to my very patient readers. It’s not been the easiest of years, lots of things have happened that have taken up my time making me unable to release this book to schedule, but I’m now able to get this book completed and released.
What is Wind Across the Nile?
A historical suspense, Wind Across the Nile is predominantly set in Egypt, but parts of it are also based in Scotland and London. It has been a hard book to write, as I created quite an intricate storyline that spans almost a hundred years, set around a number of different, interlinking, characters. The research was extensive, and it wasn’t just research about Egypt and its ancient history. There was also research that released to how people lived from 1900 to the present, as well as research relating to archaeology and archaeological sites. It’s a bit different to Among the Olive Groves, it’s got a lot more suspense in it and whilst it centres on family discovery, it also covers the dark side of archaeological artefact theft too. Because of all of that it took a long time to write and get right, but I’m so happy with the final result and cant wait to release it.
I hope that readers enjoy it, it’s a book that I’ve enjoyed writing and can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on.
The book description:
Can she survive where her ancestors failed?
Suffering with grief after the tragic death of her family, Cora Thomas flees to Egypt, desperate to escape the overwhelming loss.
In Luxor, she meets gruff Egyptologist Nick Foster who wants little to do with her, and his employee Sam, who instantly becomes a much sought-after friend.
As she settles into life along the Nile, discovering the country’s vast history and culture, Cora learns about the contents of an old diary discovered in her parents’ home. As the diary’s story unfolds, it reveals hardship, love, tragedy and a potentially life-threatening family feud spanning generations.
From the rolling hills of the Scottish Highlands to the ruinous sands of the Egyptian desert, Wind across the Nile is a story of unbreakable family bonds, adversity and self-preservation.
Wind Across the Nile will be released this summer on ebook and paperback across all sales platforms.
