Where We Belong by Lynn Austin
Little description:The Adventure of a Lifetime for Two Indomitable Socialite Sisters
In the city of Chicago in 1892, the rules for Victorian women are strict, their roles 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 has brought them to the Sinai Desert–and into a sandstorm.
Accompanied by Soren Petersen, their somber young butler, and Kate Rafferty, a street urchin who is learning to be their ladies’ maid, the two women are on a quest to find an important biblical manuscript. As the journey becomes more dangerous and uncertain, the four travelers sift through memories of their past, recalling the events that shaped them and the circumstances that brought them to this time and place.
Genre: Religious/ Historical Fiction

My thoughts: 4 stars out of 5
Meet Rebecca and Flora Hawes… those the most outrageous adventure-seekers I have ever encountered. Their courage to travel miles and miles of sand, living through the dangerous sandstorms just for the destination to have the greatest adventure of all… To rebellious for their society and too straight-forward and bold in their moves, whether they take a trip to tea shop or travel across the half-world and distant countries. They’ve got guts which kinda intimidating to my senses and style of adventure. Nevertheless the story was great, filled with truly unique girls and street stories.
