Lynn Austin’s novel Where We Belong focuses on Rebecca and Flora Hawes, two sisters from Chicago circa 1892. I enjoyed the novel for its depth and its heartfeltness. The 470-page book takes you on a journey, both emotionally and geographically, as the sisters search for a Biblical manuscript, along with their butler, Soren Petersen, and ladies’ maid in training, Kate Rafferty. I loved getting to know the key characters of the novel, who are all crafted with unique personalities and ambitions. It is exciting for the reader to tag along on the group’s adventure.
