"A deliciously supernatural mystery and love story best paired with a glass of a sherry, a crackling fire, and a keen eye for secret messages hidden throughout." -BestThrillers.com

I've always been fascinated by ancient Egypt. I was particularly intrigued by a woman named Dorothy Eady, a British woman who believed she was the reincarnation of an Egyptian priestess. That, combined with the fact that Nefertiti was such an important woman in Egyptian history, yet her tomb has never been found, inspired me to write this story of Verity.

Author M. Rebecca Wildsmith is a master of world-building. In her hands, 1930s Egypt is a truly visceral place seen through the eyes of a curious and vulnerable child, where every sound and scent comes alive on the page. Throughout, Wildsmith walks a delicate line between cinema and overly descriptive literature in her scene descriptions, ensuring that the pace is never slowed, and yet, every observation is palpable.
Verity Easton Book Review
In the early going, author M. Rebecca Wildsmith’s prose appears as formal and frosty as Hattie herself. Yet, there is a richness in the descriptions of places and observations of people that hooks the reader. Before long, it becomes clear how integral and intentional that initial setup is. Wildsmith has smartly crafted Hattie as a clever observer, and it is not a far leap to draw comparisons between Agatha Christie’s beloved sleuthing spinster Miss Marple, the cerebral thought processes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, and Christie’s delightfully snobbish sleuth, Hercule Poirot.
