Publisher's Summary

From the author of The New York Times best seller Juliet comes a mesmerizing novel about a young scholar who risks her reputation - and her life - on a thrilling journey to prove that the legendary warrior women known as the Amazons actually existed.

Oxford lecturer Diana Morgan is an expert on Greek mythology. Her obsession with the Amazons started in childhood when her eccentric grandmother claimed to be one herself - before vanishing without a trace. Diana’s colleagues shake their heads at her Amazon fixation. But then a mysterious, well-financed foundation makes Diana an offer she cannot refuse.

Traveling to North Africa, Diana teams up with Nick Barran, an enigmatic Middle Eastern guide, and begins deciphering an unusual inscription on the wall of a recently unearthed temple. There she discovers the name of the first Amazon queen, Myrina, who crossed the Mediterranean in a heroic attempt to liberate her kidnapped sisters from Greek pirates, only to become embroiled in the most famous conflict of the ancient world - the Trojan War. Taking their cue from the inscription, Diana and Nick set out to find the fabled treasure that Myrina and her Amazon sisters salvaged from the embattled city of Troy so long ago. Diana doesn’t know the nature of the treasure, but she does know that someone is shadowing her, and that Nick has a sinister agenda of his own. With danger lurking at every turn, and unsure of whom to trust, Diana finds herself on a daring and dangerous quest for truth that will forever change her world.

Sweeping from England to North Africa to Greece and the ruins of ancient Troy, and navigating between present and past, The Lost Sisterhood is a breathtaking, passionate adventure of two women on parallel journeys, separated by time, who must fight to keep the lives and legacy of the Amazons from being lost forever.

What the Critics Say

Advance praise for The Lost Sisterhood
 
The Lost Sisterhood is a spellbinding adventure, a tale of two courageous women separated by millennia but pursuing interwoven quests: one to protect and lead her sisters through a dangerous ancient world, the other to prove that the legendary tribe of women truly existed, and that their legacy endures.”—Jennifer Chiaverini, author of Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker and The Spymistress
 
“Anne Fortier’s boldly imaginative and beautifully plotted novel takes us on a spellbinding journey from the halls of Oxford to the ruins of Troy, with a mysterious journal leading the way to a fascinating history. The Lost Sisterhood connects wonderfully smart and strong sisters of the present and the past in a story I won’t soon forget.”—Meg Waite Clayton, author of The Wednesday Daughters
 
The Lost Sisterhood is a bright, burning, magnificent accomplishment. Compulsively readable, mystical and heroic, this is a novel that will capture your interest, your imagination, and your heart. The compelling characters, beautifully rendered settings, and fascinating and original history are well served by the creativity with which Fortier blends them in this truly amazing story.”—M. J. Rose, author of The Book of Lost Fragrances
 
“Magical, ambitious, and riveting, The Lost Sisterhood blends past and present to bring the myth of the ancient Amazons to life. Sweeping from the deserts of Algeria to the ruins of Troy to the far frozen reaches of Finland, Anne Fortier’s tale of a young Oxford academic sent on a mysterious quest is a masterly combination of fast-paced adventure and grand epic. I devoured this book, staying up late many a night to reach its pulse-pounding conclusion.”—Kim Fay, author of The Map of Lost Memories

    "Not that impressed"
    Would you try another book from Anne Fortier and/or Cassandra Campbell?

    I liked Juliet so I would probably try another book by Fortier. Not sure I will listen to Campbell again.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The accents were not very good. For instance, after listening to all the outlander books by Gabaldon, Campbell's Scottish accent for Craig sounded more Irish. Also, Campbell's narration just didn't feel natural to me and didn't seem to flow the way other books have. I had to stop listening to the narration on several occasions and read myself because I wasn't into it.

    "Really wanted to like this...."

    I really wanted to like this book. Anne Fortier did an outstanding job with Juliet and this was disappointing. It seemed to drag and the story of the Amazons didn't catch me - wasn't plausible enough for me to continue the read. I bailed on this book.....

    "Not a Bad Book"
    If you could sum up The Lost Sisterhood in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, Interesting, Action-Packed.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the information on Amazons and the relationship between the main character and her grandmother.


    Have you listened to any of Cassandra Campbell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Neither, though I did worry about Nick.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not in the same class as say Outlander but the information and the juxtaposition of the time of antiquity and present was interesting.

    "Love this Author and her Books!"

    This book has it all: history, adventure, love, mystery, and danger. I love how thorough Anne Fortier is with her research into the subject of the Amazons and really takes history and myth and makes a wonderful story of it, linking past and present. I loved this book, and I loved her first book, Juliet. Just wish she had another one so I could read that too!

    A good narrator can make a mediocre book come alive. I love having a story read to me - it's a wonderful escape.

    Story
    "Ok, but I do not recommend it."

    This story was not what I thought it would be, but when I realized what it really was about, I was open to the premise. It is a very long book (which normally I like), but I never really got into the story. The narrator is very good and was not the problem at all. There was no humor in it and the action was simple and frankly boring to me. I cannot recommend this book. And, frankly, I am very liberal with my appreciation. I usually like every book.

    But, this is just my opinion - if you are interested in it, you should try it.

    Story
    "I had expected something similar to Juliet"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    More historical facts, more complexity in story


    Would you recommend The Lost Sisterhood to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. I know they'd be disappointed.


    Could you see The Lost Sisterhood being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. I would rather see Juliet made into a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll still buy the next book by Anne Fortier. She writes beautifully. It's just that she needs someting concret to write about. Perhaps more research?
