Miscellanea and Ephemeron

Review by Kathryn Ramage
After the end of World War II, when her archeologist father dies after sending her a cryptic letter from Cairo, Gemma Bastion goes to Egypt herself; she retraces her father's steps to find out what he discovered just before his death, and why he was killed for it. The Gnostic texts Gemma discovers show some major divergences from the accepted gospel, especially regarding the view of women in the early Church. Gemma's efforts to find and recover these texts also lead her through a personal spiritual journey.
The book concludes with series of appendices including a glossary of terms, a brief explanation of Gnosticism, a Q&A session, and an intriguing list of who among the characters in this book were real people (Gemma is not).
