The salt road by Jane Johnson( Book )

"Isabelle's estranged archeologist father dies, leaving her a puzzle. In a box she finds some papers and a mysterious African amulet--but their connection to her remains unclear until she embarks on a trip to Morocco to discover how the amulet came into her father's possession. When the amulet is damaged and Isabelle almost killed in an accident, she fears her curiosity has gotten the better of her. But Taïb, her rescuer, knows the dunes and their peoples, and offers to help uncover the amulet's extraordinary history, involving Tin Hinan--She of the Tents--who made a legendary crossing of the desert, and her beautiful descendant Mariata. Across years and over hot, shifting sands, tracking the Salt Road, the stories of Isabelle and Taïb, Mariata and her lover become entangled with that of the lost amulet. It is a tale of souls wounded by history and of love blossoming on barren ground."--P. [4] of cover

The bestiary : a novel by Nicholas Christopher( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A tale that is at once a fantastical historical mystery, a haunting love story, and a glimpse into the uncanny. Xeno Atlas grows up in the Bronx, his Sicilian grandmother's stories of animal spirits his only escape from the legacy of his mother's early death and his stern father's long absences. Shunted off to an isolated boarding school, Xeno turns his fascination with animals into a personal obsession: his search for the medieval Caravan Bestiary, lost for eight hundred years, which supposedly details the animals not granted passage on the Ark--griffins, hippogriffs, manticores, and basilisks--the vanished remnants of a lost world. Xeno's quest takes him from the tenements of New York to the jungles of Vietnam to the ancient libraries of Europe--but it is only by riddling out his own family secrets that he can hope to find what he is looking for.--From publisher description
