Athena was the daughter of the renowned archeologist Hamish Duncan. She lived a sheltered life cocooned in the love and luxury that her parents gave her. As a Master’s degree holder following in her father’s footsteps, she went to every dig site and formal parties with him. However, a tragedy occurred that ripped her life apart. While she was navigating through the chaos that was her new life, Patrice showed up with a tale of affection and adoration, with a focus on her father’s work. Dr. Latimer was not left out of the campaign to win Athena’s heart. Two accomplished and drop-dead gorgeous men were after Athena, but were their intentions pure? What secret do they hold and how is it connected to her tragedy? Ancient History by Sophie Penhaligon has all the juicy details.
Ancient History by Sophie Penhaligon is a full-blown, beautiful, suspenseful romance novel with an academic approach. I loved the fantastic and wholesome plot that was based on family, loyalty, trust, deception, sacrifice, and honor. The character development was also excellent with the energetic Marie-Claire waltzing around the place and leaving drops of life like the queen that she is. Athena’s character also appealed to me because it was realistic and relatable. We’ve all been at points in our lives where our intuition kicked in during situations, but we ignored it just because... I loved the writing style as it was simple and captivating, which made the story easy to follow. A flawlessly edited book with seamless dialogues makes for a great reading experience, and Sophie ensured I got that. She is a fantastic storyteller, by the way, and I would love to read more from her.
