Review

Praise for Secrets of the Sands:

‘This well-paced story brings the perfumes and landscape of Arabia shimmeringly to life.’ -- The Daily Mail

‘A thoroughly enjoyable read. Recommended.’ -- bookbag.co.uk

'Secret of the Sands is distinguished from other genre offerings by the care paid to historical detail.' -- Financial Times

Sheridan's last novel, the Secret Mandarin, was our top historical romance of 2009. Meticulously researched and rich in period details, Secret of the Sands is on course to be the favourite of 2011.
-- Daily Record

Praise for The Secret Mandarin:

‘A truly sumptuous, action-packed Oriental adventure that might just be our favourite historical romance of the year.’ -- Daily Record

‘An enchanting story that draws you in… perfect for whiling away the hours on a rainy day.’ -- Closer

‘If you like mystery, history, love and adventure then this book is for you!’ -- Scottish Home & Country

‘A very enjoyable voyage to the Far East.’ -- Weekly News


About the Author

Sara Sheridan is an historical novelist who writes two different kinds of books. One is a series of cosy crime noir mysteries set in Brighton in the 1950s – Brighton Belle – and the other is a set of novels based on the real-life stories of late Georgian and early Victorian explorers and adventurers (1820 – 1845) – The Secret Mandarin and Secret of the Sands. Tipped in Company and GQ magazines, she has been nominated for a Young Achiever Award. She received a Scottish Library Award for Truth or Dare, her first novel, and was shortlisted for the Saltire Book Prize. An occasional journalist and blogger, Sara appears on BBC Radio 4's From Our Own Correspondent and blogs for the Guardian and the London Review of Books. She is a twitter evangelist and a self-confessed swot. Sara sits on the Committee of the Society of Authors in Scotland where she lives and also on the board of the UK-wide writers' collective '26' and took part in the acclaimed 26 Treasures project in 2010 at the V&A, in 2011 at National
Museum of Scotland and in 2012 at the Children's Museum, Bethnal Green.
She is a member of the Historical Writers Association and the Crime Writers
Association. Sara also mentors for the Scottish Book Trust.
