November 2010 Book of the Month.

 

Despite its misleading cover, this is a charming story of society London in the 1920s, influenced by the discoveries in Egypt, particularly the famous tomb of Tutankhamen.  Much of the narrative is interspersed with memories of that great find and the events surrounding it.  It also touches on the horror of World War I and the ‘forgotten’ soldiers suffering from shell shock. A nice portrait of women’s lives at a time of social upheaval and a man’s life at a time of emotional disturbance.


Comparison: Rebecca Dean, Judith Lennox, Mary Doria Russell.
