About the Book

      Ciara Norman has been told from early childhood that she is a direct descendant of African royalty.  Since her family lives a nice, but ordinary life she finds this story hard to believe until her favorite Aunt gives her a cedar box filled with documents that are written in a strange African language that neither she nor anyone around her can decipher. Her aunt claims that these documents prove that they truly are members of a royal African family.

            Dr. Samson Randolph, a handsome archeologist and curator of the Black History Museum is planning an expedition to Africa to research a Lost Nubian Tribe. Ciara, a news reporter for the Chicago Reporter Newspaper, requests and is given the assignment to cover the archeological expedition of Dr. Randolph. While in Egypt, Ciara pursues her quest to uncover the mystery of the cedar box and her royal lineage and  Dr. Randolph, intrigued with Ciara, the beautiful reporter helps her research its authenticity.  In the end, Ciara has to choose between a dream life as an African princess or true love in America with the man of her dreams.
