Join Two Incomparable Sisters on Adventures That Span the Decades And Cross the Globe
In the city of Chicago in 1892, the rules and expectations for Victorian women are strict, their roles in life limited. But sisters Rebecca and Flora Hawes are not typical Victorian ladies. Their love of adventure and their desire to use their God-given talents have taken them out of society ballrooms and delivered them to the Sinai Desert--and into the teeth of a sandstorm.
Accompanied by Soren Petersen, their somber young butler, and Kate Rafferty, a plucky street urchin learning to be their lady's maid, the two women are on a quest across the desert, chasing rumors of an important biblical manuscript.
As the expedition becomes ever more dangerous and uncertain, all four travelers sift through memories and adventures of their past, recalling the events that shaped them and the journeys and providence that brought them to this very time and place.
"Based on the true story of remarkable Scottish twins who discovered a copy of the 'hidden Gospels,' Where We Belong will please readers who enjoy adventure, and maybe inspire their own search for divine purpose."--CBA Market
"Lynn Austin has a remarkable talent for immersing readers in her novels, no matter the setting, theme or genre. She achieves this again with her latest story of two Victorian sisters who have spent the last thirty years snubbing societal expectations. . . . Austin deftly lays out the pieces of each character's puzzle in the present day and completes the picture by adding layers from the past. "--RT Book Reviews

This book is about two sisters and essentially their life journey together. They primary focus is on the pivotal points in life that changed them and led them to new adventures.
I received this book from Bethany House publishers to read and review it. I will honestly say that it is a great honor to be able to do this, however, I was a bit distracted by life when the book arrived. I was not initially into reading this book. I’ve read Lynn Austin’s books before and have greatly enjoyed them but again I was not in the reading mood as I was a bit overwhelmed by my own life. I was quickly pulled into the book. I was taken away from my life problems not to be temporarily distracted, but to be thoughtful about myself. I came away from reading this book inspired and changed.
Again, I will ask, do you know where you belong? If you are looking for a book that you can enjoy and learn from this is a book to consider reading (as well as any of Lynn Austin’s books). Lynn has a way with words as well as a heart for God.
This particular book appealed to me very much because of the vast amount of historical facts and locations throughout the book. Lynn uses great details to describe the action and pulls the reader into the scenes. Each of the characters in the book has a loveablely unique personality which endears them to the reader. As is often the case with Lynn Austin's books, I had a hard time putting this one down.
A book about my three favorite topics - God, Chicago, and history.
It was a great read.
