The Lost Sisterhood

The Lost Sisterhood
Review by Anne Fortier
Goodreads

The Lost Sisterhood is the new novel from the author of Juliet, an Oprah’s Book Club Pick published in 30 countries which has been 18077814picked up by Universal to be made into a feature film. The Lost Sisterhood tells the story of Diana, a young and aspiring–but somewhat aimless–professor at Oxford. Her fascination with the history of the Amazons, the legendary warrior women of ancient Greece, is deeply connected with her own family’s history; her grandmother in particular. When Diana is invited to consult on an archeological excavation, she quickly realizes that here, finally, may be the proof that the Amazons were real.

The Amazons’ “true” story–and Diana’s history–is threaded along with this modern day hunt. This historical back-story focuses on a group of women, and more specifically on two sisters, whose fight to survive takes us through ancient Athens and to Troy, where the novel reinvents our perspective on the famous Trojan War.
