"A gripping time-slip suspense story." —The Bookseller

Recently divorced, Anna Fox decides to cheer herself up by retracing a Nile cruise her great-great-grandmother, Louisa, made in the mid-nineteenth century. Anna carries with her two of Louisa's possessions—an ancient Egyptian scent bottle and an illustrated diary of the original cruise, a diary that hasn't been read in a hundred years. As she follows in Louisa's footsteps, Anna discovers in the diary a wonderful love story from the Victorian past—and the chilling, more distant secret of the little glass bottle. Meanwhile, two men on the cruise are developing an unfriendly rivalry for Anna's attention—and a disturbing interest in Louisa's things. Most frightening of all, Anna finds herself the victim of a threat that grows in strength and darkness as the dramatic stories from three different eras intertwine along the mysterious waters of the Nile.

What Readers are Saying

"The images she creates are fantastically interwoven in a mysterious romance. I couldn't stop reading."

"Great! Chilling and full of betrayal, revenge, and heat."

"All Barbara Erskine's books have the excitement, detail, slight historical slant, and twists which make the reader look over their shoulder."

"I found myself gripped by the story of Anna and her ancestor, Louisa. The two stories are skillfully threaded together with a magical blend of the stunning descriptions of Egypt and the love stories that enfold the two women."

"It is a mystery that is unfolding before your very eyes. A real page-turner."
