Seeing is believing…

At least that’s what photojournalist Marjorie Hart lives by. But her life flips on its head when she receives a posthumous letter from her father. This letter puts the details of his death in question, and it also gives Marjorie the next clue in his lifelong search for the Tree of Life. However, Marjorie quickly discovers she’s not the only one looking for it.

Across the globe and from ancient libraries to buried tombs, Marjorie’s quest forces her to test what she believes—if she can make it out alive.

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

My interest was peeked for this novel when the author described it as an action/adventure historical fiction. I have to say action/adventure is not one of my usual genres but I enjoy delving into the past so I was happy to step into unknown territory for my reading.

Author Amanda Vink sets out the scene perfectly from the glitz and glamour of the 1920’s when life was starting to buzz with new possibilities. We step into the shoes of our adventuress, Marjorie Hart, who is still grieving for her father, renowned explorer/archaeologist Julian Hart. Something doesn’t sit quite right with her father’s death, which happened during his last project in Egypt and when Marjorie receives information which questions his death even more Marjorie begins a quest to find the truth. The journey for the truth will hopefully also uncover the legend of the Tree of Life and it’s possible existence.

I was captivated by this story, the author held my interest throughout and I too was invested in the truth and the possibility of discovering a living legend. Amanda Vink has written a story full of myths, legends and mystery which questions your belief of the wonderment of it all. My eyes and mind were opened to new worlds making my imagination run free.

Marjorie Hart is a great character, a young woman of independence in a world that still struggles to recognise the strength and intelligence of women. She’s not afraid of what lies ahead and has aspirations to bring historical and archaeological importance to be shared by all.

An enjoyable read for fans of Indiana Jones and for those that love historical stories with adventure, mystery, wonderment, danger and not forgetting a little romance. I have high hopes for lots more adventures for Marjorie Hart.
