I enjoyed Beneath a Burning Sky. This intriguing historical novel takes place in two locations, one being England and the other being Egypt.
The main character, Olivia, 22 years old, is coerced into marriage by her grandmother to a cruel and abusive man known as Alistair Sheldon. She relocates to Egypt with him and is happily reunited with her sister, Clara. She is treated atrociously by Alistair and inadvertently develops feelings for her husband’s boarder, Captain Edward Bertram, when he befriends her.
Amidst all the tension, Clara is kidnapped when they visit the city. The reason behind this abduction is unclear and Olivia does her utmost to find her, despite all the obstructions put in her path.
Without spoiling it for you, I can say that this is a thrilling and deeply intriguing story with plenty of action, romance and suspense, predominantly set in Egypt during the 19th century.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys this genre.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for this ARC in exchange for an unbiased review.
