Author: Gwendolyn Womack
Genre: Historical Fiction / Mystery
Semele Cavnow appraises antiquities for an exclusive Manhattan auction house, deciphering ancient texts—and when she discovers a manuscript written in the time of Cleopatra, she knows it will be the find of her career. Its author tells the story of a priceless tarot deck, now lost to history, but as Semele delves further, she realizes the manuscript is more than it seems. Both a memoir and a prophecy, it appears to be the work of a powerful seer, describing devastating wars and natural disasters in detail thousands of years before they occurred.
Why I'm Waiting: I was pulled at the mention of Cleopatra. Egyptian history has always been a favorite for me to read and learn about, plus it's a mystery. I'm all in on this one!
