I really enjoyed this recent novel by Mesu Andrews. Historical fiction is probably one of my favorite kinds of books to read. This is a story that goes back into biblical times as far as the time of Moses and King Tut. It is well written and easy to follow and read. It is also very believable despite the fact it is not necessarily historically accurate.
The story follows a young Egyptian woman of royal blood as she grows up and becomes a wife and mother. It explores her relationships with her siblings, parents, husband, and slaves in a time of war and violence. We are at times cheering for her and at other times concerned about the choices she makes. This all makes for a book that is difficult to put down.
I would very definitely recommend this book. It is a true "page turner." I will be reading book 2 from The Treasures of the Nile series. I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
