A legacy stolen…
Hagar, an Egyptian maidservant was granted a divine promise. Through her son, Ishmael, her descendants would number in the multitudes.
When twelve sons are born to Ishmael, a bust is created to commemorate Hagar’s legacy. But after a caravan from Ur visits Ishmael’s camp, the treasured bust disappears. The thief takes it to where he presumes the Ishmaelites would never find it – the future.
Lord Bureyton believes his housemaid, Eleanor Griffin, witnessed the theft of his ancient Egyptian bust. But all she saw was a man vanished – right before her eyes.
Bureyton begins punishing Eleanor for his loss. She fears that the daily lashings will soon end her life, and she decides to runaway, disappear like that man had.
Eleanor time travels to twenty-first century London where she starts anew, but that life is threatened when Lord Bureyton leaves the Regency era and joins her in modern England, looking for his lost bust.
