內容簡介

她們各自都擁有必須保守的秘密。
她們的相遇,將觸發一連串既瘋狂又具毀滅性的事件……

受「沙漠女王」戈楚.貝爾(Gertrude Bell)與「阿拉伯的勞倫斯」(T. E. Lawrence)的傳奇故事啟發!


1950年代,英國菜鳥考古學家Joan,與未婚夫一同造訪阿曼古城馬斯喀特(Muscat)。她渴望探索沙漠中的堡壘甲布林堡(Jabrin),只發現阿曼不僅隱密,更適逢起義運動,政治的動盪,使她無法如願以償。

幸運的是,Joan遇見童年的英雄:首位橫跨沙漠的西方女性探險家Maude Vickery!她從年事已高的探險家口中,聽到許多第一手的精彩冒險故事,兩人的友誼也變得益發緊密……渴望跟隨童年英雄腳步的Joan,為達成Maude託付的任務,偽裝成阿拉伯女子,踏上充滿危險的旅程,卻發現Maude隱藏了重要真相,導致她意外被捲入比想像中更加黑暗、終將失控的局面!

故事時序在1950年代的阿曼,與1900年代初期的英國交錯進行,著重於兩位女主角的內心探索,以考究的歷史與政治背景,帶領讀者穿梭於不同時空。

英國女孩Joan從歐洲遠道而來,抵達美麗卻危險的國度,她有辦法找到回家的路嗎?

Joan Seabrook, a fledgling archaeologist, has fulfilled a lifelong dream to visit Arabia by travelling from England to the ancient city of Muscat with her fiancé, Rory. Desperate to escape the pain of a personal tragedy, she longs to explore the desert fort of Jabrin, and unearth the treasures it is said to conceal.

But Oman is a land lost in time - hard, secretive, and in the midst of a violent upheaval - and gaining permission to explore Jabrin could prove impossible. Joan's disappointment is only alleviated by the thrill of meeting her childhood heroine, pioneering explorer Maude Vickery, and hearing first-hand the stories that captured her imagination and fuelled her ambition as a child.

Joan's encounter with the extraordinary and reclusive Maude will change everything. Both women have things that they want, and secrets they must keep. As their friendship grows, Joan is seduced by Maude's stories, and the thrill of the adventure they hold, and only too late does she begin to question her actions - actions that will spark a wild, and potentially disastrous, chain of events. Will the girl that left England for this beautiful but dangerous land ever find her way back?
