GIVEAWAY: Pride and Pyramids by Amanda Grange and Jacqueline Webb



International bestselling author Amanda Grange and Egyptology expert Jacqueline Webb team up to create a breathtaking historical tale set in the land of the Pharaohs. Sourcebooks Landmark is proud to present Pride and Pyramids: Mr. Darcy in Egypt (ISBN: 9781402265341, July 2012, $14.99 U.S., Trade Paperback, Fiction). The beloved Darcy family takes on the pyramids of Egypt in this unique Pride and Prejudice sequel.


"Grange provides a really intriguing possibility as to what may have been going on in Darcy's head throughout it all… Amanda Grange does a great job of keeping both the language and the behavior authentic to Jane Austen and the early 19th century... she is one of the best at doing so that I have found...." 
--Epinions.com


Pulled into the craze of Egyptology, Elizabeth, Darcy and their lively children embark on an expedition to Egypt with Colonel Fitzwilliam's younger brother.  Romantic interludes between Darcy and Elizabeth intertwine with the unraveling of a mystery dating back to an ancient Egyptian woman. They find long-hidden treasure thwart a theft and betrayal by the ever-villainous George Wickham, and lay to rest an ancient ghost. The Darcys' adventures at the hands of these talented storytellers open up whole new realms of exploration for lovers of Jane Austen and the Regency world.


"...A very absorbing story that blended well-loved characters with a new and novel adventure..."
--Bridget

I have a fascination of Egypt because my husband is a Master Stone Mason and he is always reading books about ancient Egypt.

Many people don't realize that the skilled workers and who built the pyramids were well looked after and they were well feed and not only were they provided good housing but their families as well.

Pride and Pyramids by Amanda and Jacqueline is one of the rare books that both my husband and I would love reading and I can only begin to imagine the discussions we'd have over a cup of coffee after dinner!
