Alternating between modern-day siblings who are locked in rivalry well into adulthood and the hunt for sacred texts a century ago, this novel offers many rich layers of history. Dara Horn has created a remarkably interwoven tale, which shifts between the past and present, as well between continents and religious points of view. Narrator Carrington MacDuffie capably handles the multiple shifts in time periods, settings, and characters. Furthermore, her character depictions capture the humanity in the story's wide cast. Happily, MacDuffie's use of accent, tone, pitch, and pace creates enough variety to keep the listener fully engaged in this twisting, mysterious tale.
