The Tenth Gift by Jane Johnson
I was completely enthralled from the first page. Historical mystery based on historical fact. Two intertwining stories of Julia in modern-day Cornwall and Catherine in 17 century Cornwall mix together for an engaging story within a story. The detailed descriptions of the actualities of the Barbary Pirate slave trade and the exotic environment of Morocco then and now leap off the page, allowing you to feel as if you are there. Both women are connected by their gift of embroidery, which plays a key role.
