A thrilling new historical novel that will forever alter our understanding of one of mankind’s greatest myths—the Amazons—from the author of the New York Times bestseller Juliet

The Lost Sisterhood tells the story of Diana, an aspiring young— but somewhat aimless—professor at Oxford. Her fascination with the history of the Amazons, the legendary warrior women of ancient Greece, is deeply connected with her own family’s history. When Diana is invited to consult on an archaeological excavation, she quickly realizes that here, finally, may be the proof that the Amazons were real.

The “true” history of the Amazons is threaded through the modern-day hunt Diana embarks upon with her mysterious employer. This remote backstory focuses on a group of women and more specifically on two sisters, whose fight to survive takes us through ancient Greece and to Troy, where the novel reinvents our perspective on the famous Trojan War.

The Lost Sisterhood features a cast of iconic, legendary characters and another grand adventure from a master storyteller. Fortier delivers a fresh new story to keep her audience coming back for more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sisterhood Although I enjoyed this book in terms of tearoysing ny curiosity regarding myths in genral and ancient Greek civilization, the alternating chapters quickly became tiring. In addition Kate Mosses's Labyrinth kept on springing to mind. In a way this felt a bit like a copy cat novel and as such lessened my enjoyment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Lost Sisterhood Enjoyed the story very much, especially the historical references. I think it is important to recognize the strength of women in this story. I was sorry to find myself at the end of the book. I would recommend this book to any women's bookclub group.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderfully put together. I couldn't put this book down. It is filled with so many twists and turns that it's impossible not to get drawn in. Anne Fortier has found the perfect mix of mythical and real life to weave her story.
