From the Editor

From the moment she plunges into the sea at the start of The Lioness of Morocco, Sibylla Spencer spoke to me—more specifically, to my inner nineteenth-century heroine, who longs to flout convention, cast off her corset, and raise her voice in defiance of what she’s told she cannot do.

Sibylla is the kind of protagonist who is easy to identify with on her journey from sheltered, somewhat spoiled English heiress to savvy Middle Eastern business magnate, who gains confidence as she smashes norms and disregards the expectations of her disapproving husband and fellow expatriates. Leaving her white-gloved Downton Abbey-esque London world of picnics and cricket matches behind to embrace the colorful, comfortable flowing garments and kohl eye makeup worn by local Moroccan women, Sibylla comes into her own, discovering that what is “foreign” may be more true to herself than what is familiar—and that what is familiar may actually be sinister.

Bestselling German author Julia Drosten makes her debut in English with this novel that transports us to an environment of minarets, dates, henna, oranges, lemons, amber, nutmeg, and couscous, where the open horizon holds endless opportunity and a considerable amount of peril.

At every step, I cheered Sibylla’s discovery of her new world, and her new self. Your inner nineteenth-century heroine may well do the same!

About the Author

Julia Drosten is the pseudonym for a two-person writing team based in Münsterland, Germany. This novel was originally published in German under the title Die Löwin von Mogador and was an Amazon bestseller in Germany.

The authors have written many other works of historical fiction in German, and they greatly enjoy conducting research for their novels, diving into history and making the past come alive. They count flying in a historic biplane, watching butchers work in a butcher’s shop, exploring Egypt, and being pampered by a beautician among their research pursuits. The Lioness of Morocco is their first novel translated into English.
