The second book in the Parched series, The Brothers’ Keepers is an epic journey across Europe, spread over ten days. Full of fascinating research, author NLB Horton draws on her experience of archaeological surveys as part of her master’s degree—and as a member of the venerable Explorers Club, an international, multidisciplinary society dedicated to the advancement of field research.
We follow archaeologist Grace Madison’s search for her missing daughter Maggie. Grace is also trying to save her marriage and through this we explore perennial issues of faith, loyalty and love, as well as the choice between family or career.
This is a book that rewards careful reading, as there are so many facets to the story (and possibly some I would only discover on a second reading). If you enjoy reading about ancient artifacts and legends you will find plenty here to keep you gripped. Recommended.
