About the Book

It is the middle of the nineteenth century and Anne Rose is an independent young woman who is intent on leaving a loveless engagement behind and becoming a surgeon in England. After she purchases a ticket on a steamship to Cairo under a false name, she lies to several passengers and tells them she is heading to Egypt to join her father. But then moments later, she fibs again and tells other passengers she is meeting her professor husband. Richard Lawrence has been traveling to Cairo for the past decade to deliver expedition groups to Cairo as part of his job at a British museum. After he is introduced to Anne on the ship, he is immediately drawn to her, but suspicious of her conflicting stories about her life. As the two-week voyage begins and an unexpected medical event brings them together, their chemistry heightens when Anne reveals the real reasons why she is traveling to Cairo. Will their burgeoning feelings for each other be enough to survive their challenges and propel her down a path toward her dream? In this historical novel, a young woman with a big dream of becoming a surgeon in nineteenth century England must reconcile with her past as her path crosses with a handsome suitor.
