Shadows on the Nile by Kate Furnivall Review
Shadows on the Nile - Kate Furnivall

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads. (Uncorrected Proof)

*Spoiler Free*

In 1912 London one night Jessie Kenton hears her little brother, Georgie, scream and wakes up the next morning find him gone. Her mother and father never speak of him again.

Twenty years later, Jessie's other brother, Timothy, vanishes. with the guilt over never finding Georgie she sets out to find Timothy which leads her to Egypt along with the help from Sir Montague Chamford.

This is told from different characters' points of view. It was quite easy to follow as the points of view changed from one character to another. To me that was a big plus. There were a few grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors, since it was an uncorrected proof it did not bother me as much. I loved the descriptive details throughout the story. I found it easier to picture the surrounding the characters described. The author provided a lot of information of Egypt and many other things through the story so that you are not left wondering or confused. I feel the author did very well in her research of Egypt for this novel.

All in all, I enjoyed my time reading this novel. It was a refreshing difference from what I usually read.

Would I read it again?
Sure

Would I recommend it to others?
yes
