Alice & Augustus: Ancient Secrets

eBook (ePub)
(1 Ratings)
Price: $5.99
At nineteen, I went to a seance at my Uncle Jacob's house where I was told by a clairvoyant that I would meet a man much older than myself, be married within months and travel to the ancient Mayan land of the Yucatan where we make the discovery of a lifetime. To me this was unimaginable. In 1851, I worked at my father's photography studio in Regent's Park, London. Then one day I bumped into Augustus Le Plongeon, I knew immediately it was him, the one I was to wed. Nothing prepared me for the extreme conditions of daily life in the Yucatan with rebels, murder and the ravages of disease. I almost died on more than one occasion. Our work was ground breaking as we decoded the messages and ancient images on the stone inside the 'House of Mysterious Writings' in Chichen Itza. My life was remarkable and as a young girl I took that one chance for a different life with faith and an open heart. In Victorian times, this was quite a feat and I am proud to be Alice Dixon Le Plongeon.

    Read this after reading 'Under Spello Sky' by the same authors. I was totally engulfed by the real life story of Alice Dixon Le Plongeon and her life with explorer husband Augustus. Although displayed as a historical fiction my research reading shows it to be quite an accurate account of her real life. Enjoyed the scene when they were at Chichen Itza watching the funeral scene, I felt I was there next to them. Rhonda
