About the Author
"Blue Desert is unflinchingly adventurous, unashamedly feminist, deeply human and thoughtful. Jeffries seamlessly weaves two narratives: eighteen-year-old Alice with the Tuareg tribe in wartime Sahara and seventy-eight-year-old Alice in London-to a compelling conclusion without sacrificing the lyricism of her prose, lush grounding in the natural world, or the heartbreaking complexity of her characters."- Ellen Meeropol, Author of Her Sister's Tattoo
"Blue Desert, a page-turner of exquisite beauty, ricochets from the heyday of England's colonial power to the majestic Tuareg of the Sahara Desert. This book tunnels through time and our hearts when a young English woman finds a love that transcends the codes of two societies. Prepare to be transported.
A good novel transports us to another place and time. A great novel makes us wish that the book would never end. I desperately did not want Blue Desert to end. Celia Jeffries has written a stunning book."-Jacqueline Sheehan, New York Times bestselling author
"Page after surprising page, Celia Jeffries carefully metes out clues to the puzzle of Alice's extraordinary life, from London to the Sahara Desert and back again. Blue Desert is a mesmerizing and unforgettable story. Once you start reading, you won't be able to stop."-Ellen Wittlinger, author of Someone Else's Shoes
