From the Editor

From the moment she plunges into the sea at the start of The Lioness of Morocco, Sibylla Spencer spoke to me—more specifically to my inner nineteenth-century heroine, who longs to flout convention, cast off her corset and raise her voice in defiance of what she’s told she cannot do.

Sibylla is the kind of protagonist who is easy to identify with on her journey from sheltered, somewhat spoiled English heiress to savvy Middle Eastern business magnate, who gains confidence as she smashes norms and disregards the expectations of her disapproving husband and fellow expatriates. Leaving behind her white-gloved Downton Abbey-esque London world of picnics and cricket matches to embrace the colourful, comfortable flowing garments and kohl eye make-up worn by local Moroccan women, Sibylla comes into her own, discovering that what is ‘foreign’ may be more true to herself than what is familiar—and that what is familiar may actually be sinister.

Bestselling German author Julia Drosten makes her debut in English with this novel, which transports us to an environment of minarets, dates, henna, oranges, lemons, amber, nutmeg and couscous, where the open horizon holds endless opportunity and a considerable amount of peril.

At every step I cheered Sibylla’s discovery of her new world and her new self. Your inner nineteenth-century heroine may well do the same!

- Elizabeth DeNoma, Editor

Product description

Product Description

Independent-minded Sibylla Spencer feels trapped in nineteenth-century London, where her strong will and progressive views have rendered her unmarriageable. Still single at twenty-three, she is treated like a child and feels stifled in her controlling father’s house.

When Benjamin Hopkins, an ambitious employee of her father’s trading company, shows an interest in her, she realizes marriage is her only chance to escape. As Benjamin’s rising career whisks them both away to exotic Morocco, Sibylla is at last a citizen of the world, reveling in her newfound freedom by striking her first business deals, befriending locals…and falling in love for the first time with a charismatic and handsome Frenchman.

But Benjamin’s lust for money and influence draws him into dark dealings, pulling him ever further from Sibylla and their two young sons. When he’s arrested on horrible charges, the fate of Sibylla’s family rests on her shoulders, as she must decide whether she’ll leave him to his fate or help him fight for his life.

About the Author

Julia Drosten is the pseudonym for a two-person writing team based in Munsterland, Germany. This novel was originally published in German under the title Die Lowin von Mogador and was an Amazon bestseller in Germany. The authors have written many other works of historical fiction in German, and they greatly enjoy conducting research for their novels, diving into history and making the past come alive. They count flying in a historic biplane, watching butchers work in a butcher's shop, exploring Egypt, and being pampered by a beautician among their research pursuits. The Lioness of Morocco is their first novel translated into English.
