Liner arriving at Port Said ROSE AND THE NILE CAT

Rose and the Nile Cat is a novel for readers of 11+. It is set in Egypt in both Victorian and ancient times.

It seems like fourteen-year-old twin Rose Evering has been looking for adventure all her life. Now she’s in Egypt with Lily, her not-so-identical, identical twin.

From the first moment Rose meets Mr Baxter, she feels uneasy. Why is he following them? What does he want? Then her dreams are filled by the unfolding story of Miut, an ancient cat of the Temple of Osiris. She and Lily must fulfil an ancient quest – if they fail, Rose is certain of just one thing – the price of that failure will be death.
