9780062302700: The Visitors

Sent abroad to Egypt in 1922, eleven-year-old Lucy is caught up in the excitement that surrounds the hunt for Tutankhamun's tomb. When she meets Frances, the daughter of an American archaeologist, the two girls spy on the grown-ups and a lifelong bond is formed. Haunted by the ghosts of her past, the mistakes she made, Lucy disinters her past. And she finally comes to terms with what happened after Egypt, when Frances needed Lucy most.

Review:

Colourful and fast-paced, this chunky but highly readable novel offers plenty of intrigue and an interesting portrait of the adult world, as seen through a child's enquiring eyes. ( The Lady)

The settings are glamorous and mysterious, the woman who dies in strange, unexplained circumstances is morally dubious and very beautiful, and there are real-life characters, such as Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon, searching for Tutankhamun's tomb, to add extra spice ( Independent on Sunday)

Book Description:

'It's Death on the Nile meets Downton Abbey, as the action moves between Highclere Castle and Egypt's Valley of the Kings . . . A gripping story touching on friendship, scholarship, love and family' Daily Mail

Book Description Harper Paperbacks, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 202 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Based on a true story of discovery, The Visitors is New York Times bestselling author Sally Beauman s brilliant recreation of the hunt for Tutankhamun s tomb in Egypt s Valley of the Kings--a dazzling blend of fact and fiction that brings to life a lost world of exploration, adventure, and danger, and the audacious men willing to sacrifice everything to find a lost treasure. In 1922, when eleven year-old Lucy is sent to Egypt to recuperate from typhoid, she meets Frances, the daughter of an American archaeologist. The friendship draws the impressionable young girl into the thrilling world of Lord Carnarvon and Howard Carter, who are searching for the tomb of boy pharaoh Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings. A haunting tale of love and loss, The Visitors retells the legendary story of Carter and Carnarvon s hunt and their historical discovery, witnessed through the eyes of a vulnerable child whose fate becomes entangled in their dramatic quest. As events unfold, Lucy will discover the lengths some people will go to fulfill their deepest desires--and the lies that become the foundation of their lives. Intensely atmospheric, The Visitors recalls the decadence of Egypt s aristocratic colonial society, and illuminates the obsessive, daring men willing to risk everything--even their sanity--to claim a piece of the ancient past. As fascinating today as it was nearly a century ago, the search for King Tut s tomb is made vivid and immediate in Sally Beauman s skilled hands. A dazzling feat of imagination, The Visitors is a majestic work of historical fiction. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062302700
