The Lost Sisterhood
NovelBook - 2014
A thrilling new historical novel that will forever alter our understanding of one of mankind's greatest myths--the Amazons--from the author of the New York Times bestseller Juliet
The Lost Sisterhood tells the story of Diana, an aspiring young-- but somewhat aimless--professor at Oxford. Her fascination with the history of the Amazons, the legendary warrior women of ancient Greece, is deeply connected with her own family's history. When Diana is invited to consult on an archaeological excavation, she quickly realizes that here, finally, may be the proof that the Amazons were real.
The "true" history of the Amazons is threaded through the modern-day hunt Diana embarks upon with her mysterious employer. This remote backstory focuses on a group of women and more specifically on two sisters, whose fight to survive takes us through ancient Greece and to Troy, where the novel reinvents our perspective on the famous Trojan War.
The Lost Sisterhood features a cast of iconic, legendary characters and another grand adventure from a master storyteller. Fortier delivers a fresh new story to keep her audience coming back for more.

The first third of this was so interesting then I felt it slowly dissolved into a silly romance.
