This was by far my favorite book since the "children" have grown up. Full of love, peril, suspense!

A lost journal of Amelia Peabody has been miraculously recovered: a chronicle from one of the "missing years", 1907-1908, shedding light on an already exceptional career...and an unexpected terror. Ousted from their most recent archaeological dig and banned forever from the Valley of the Kings, the Emersons are spending a quiet summer at home in Kent, England, when a mysterious messenger arrives.

It's a great story line. I enjoy all of these books. This was my first time listening to an abridged version. Not my favorite version, I like to hear every detail. So if like it short and sweet it will work for you.

Fun book to take you away to another land. A little romance, a little murder, very humorous!
