Morgan Sherburn is a cop from Los Angeles who, while cleaning out her family’s English manor house after the death of her great-grandfather, stumbles across her great-grandmother’s journal from her trip to Egypt back in the 1920s.
Morgan has been told that her great-grandmother died in Egypt of a fever, but she comes to discover, in the pages of the journal, that her great-grandmother may have been murdered because of a mysterious papyrus, called the Lady of Heaven papyrus, which is still in the family’s possession.
Enlisting the help of Dr. Fox Henredon, a prestigious British Egyptologist, to assist in deciphering the papyrus seems like a mistake at first. Dr. Henredon is handsome, brilliant, and skeptical, and when he and Morgan come together, the sparks fly. But when the dust settles and a strong attraction develops, Morgan is determined to go to Egypt to track the clues of the Lady of Heaven papyrus, which Fox has discovered to be an ancient document alluding to the tomb of the goddess Isis.
As Fox and Morgan dig deeper and deeper into the clues of the mysterious papyrus, old legends become truth, friends turn out to be enemies, and in the middle of it all, Morgan discovers the truth about her great-grandmother, which she could have never imagined. Along with the truth about her great-grandmother come discoveries and danger on a catastrophic scale.
Clever twists and ancient mysteries abound in this deeply romantic novel set in the timeless sands of Egypt, where ancient legends and modern realities collide.
