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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazon Women, you know? You should. For people who enjoy adventure, fantasy, ancient civilization, history, archaeology, this book is for you, and especially if you're a woman yourself. I had a hard time taking it down; I would read every night before going to bed. There was this suspense, always wondering what's next and thinking about their destiny. It definitely kept me hungry for more every time I would pick it up for a few chapters read. I think it would be an interesting read for women book clubs!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong Women This books presents a fascinating story encompassing adventure, fantasy,archaeology, and history. The book is about strong women who seek to take control of their own lives and create their own destiny. The author weaves Greek history and historical references into a story about an academic scholar and the legendary Amazon women who she seeks to prove the existence of. A journey to Greece of the past and the present. The book shows that women have made a strong contribution throughout history to the world and that this should be recognized.

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 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.
