Remember when you first learned to ride a bike? It’s all about balance, isn’t it? You’ll appreciate that same skill in A Lady Cyclist’s Guide to Kashgar, a story that weaves between female missionaries in 1923 Asia and a woman in modern-day London who shows kindness to a Yemeni refugee. British citizens Eva, Lizzie, and Millicent have their strength and ideals tested when they find themselves unexpectedly caring for an infant while under house arrest in Turkestan. Then we shift to Frieda, a present-day Middle Eastern scholar who returns home after a long absence to discover she has inherited an apartment from a woman she has never met. Explore exotic lands and intriguing connections in Suzanne Joinson’s debut novel.
