Read Where We Belong Online Free - The Adventure of a Lifetime for Two Indomitable Socialite Sisters

In the city of Chicago in 1892, the rules for Victorian women are strict, their roles limited. But sisters Rebecca and Flora Hawes are not typical Victorian ladies. Their love of adventure and their desire to use their God-given talents has brought them to the Sinai Desert--and into a sandstorm.

Accompanied by Soren Petersen, their somber young butler, and Kate Rafferty, a street urchin who is learning to be their ladies' maid, the two women are on a quest to find an important biblical manuscript. As the journey becomes more dangerous and uncertain, the four travelers sift through memories of their past, recalling the events that shaped them and the circumstances that brought them to this time and place.

I picked up this book for one reason--Lynn Austin! I'm a big fan of her books. Wonderland Creek is my jam. A Woman's Place, epic. I could go on and on. Where We Belong starts in the late 1880's (90's? One of those...) and that is the "present day". Here we are introduced to Rebekah, Flora, Peterso...

I’m learning Austin’s style. Her books are the nice, long ones that are perfect for cold weather, warm blankets, and mugs of hot drinks. They aren’t really the type that keep me up all hours of the night in intense curiosity, but they’re just those good stories. The writer in me wishes they were...

An inspiring historical tale based in part on the lives of two remarkable real-life sisters whose courage and faith led them to follow their dreams against societal norms, and make an amazing discovery that rocked the world. The story begins in 1890 while the pair are on a difficult trek to an an...

What an epic adventure! Lynn Austin is a new author to me, but I will be looking up her other books after reading "Where We Belong". If you like adventure, travel, strong female characters, and deep spiritual content, you will like "Where We Belong"! This book is broken up into sections. Each sect...

Previously published on Purely by Faith Reviews. My Review: Okay, so this is my first time reading a book by Lynn Austin and it was the best historical fiction I’ve ever read! I’ll admit it did take me a few chapters to fully get into it, but when I did….. I just had to keep going. I found Rebecca a...

I didn't find the satisfaction in this book liked I had hoped to but it was still a pleasant read. It's a little long for my taste; I find a story has withered by page 350; and this far exceeds that. Rebecca and Flora travel for a good portion through-out this story and it's told mostly when they...

An epic tale about two invincible sisters who refuse to be confined by societal expectations. And while a work of fiction Where We Belong reads more like a memoir since it is a collection of memories. In fact, the largest portion of these 470 pages is spent in past decades -- and told from the po...

This was my first Lynn Austin book, and I can gladly say that I enjoyed her writing. It was thorough, and pleasant. It was delightful to follow the sisters, Rebecca and Flora, on their great many adventures, and their center goal always being the Lord. I also loved their saying, “The Lord knows ou...

I was introduced to Lynn Austin's books this past summer when Lynn was a featured speaker at a local Public Library event. Lynn was invited to talk about her latest book (at that time), Waves of Mercy. Waves of Mercy is set in my hometown, Holland Michigan, where Lynn also lives (I have since dis...
