Where We Belong starts in 1890 in the Sinai Desert with forty five year old Rebecca Hawes traveling to St Catherine’s Monastery to search for ancient copies of the Bible It’s a start that hooked me immediately both because of the historical setting and because of the age of the heroine—it’s refreshing to read a novel where the heroine is out of her twentiesI was also intrigued because I could relate to Rebecca’s thoughts about the desolate nature of the Sinai between Cairo and St Catherines Her journey took seven days by camel In comparison mine took seven hours by minibus but that was uite long enough to feel for the stubborn Israelites condemned to spend forty years in the heat and dustIt's one thing to learn a language and another thing to understand the people who speak itBut then Where We Belong left the Sinai in 1890 and travelled back to 1860 Chicago—and I wasn’t impressed It was still Rebecca’s story but now Rebecca was a pampered teenager in the days before the Civil War which I knew was coming even though she didn’t Fortunately it soon became apparent that Rebecca was no ordinary Victorian era teenager and nor was her sister FloraThe novel followed Rebecca and Flora from their teenage years in Chicago through to showing why they are travelling to the Sinai in 1890 with only a couple of young servants for protection The most fascinating thing is that Rebecca and Flora are based on real life adventurers Agnes and Margaret Smith born in Scotland in 1843This explains one of the strengths of the novel—the feeling of historical authenticity that can only be gained by extensive research and then leaving out most of the detail of that research The other strength was related and that was the Christian element Rebecca and Flora like the real life Agnes and Margaret were women of deep faith They were intelligent women who had the strength of character to choose to follow God not society and who had endless compassion for the poorI’m a history fan and I loved it from the first line to the last I don’t think I stopped in between Lynn Austin has yet to write a novel I haven’t enjoyed but I do think this is her best yet Recommended for Christian historical fiction fans especially those who enjoy authors such as Elizabeth Camden and Jody HedlundThanks to Bethany House and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review
