Don't let my lengthy reading time fool you into thinking this book was a definitely is not! But I lost a few weeks reading time just as I got started with this wonderful story so it seemed to take forever to finish.

Lovely young Uarda is the innocent catalyst for a complex series of plots, intrigues, and romances that bring ancient Egypt to life. I still feel as though I am in Thebes, wandering from the temples to the necropolis to the small hut where Uarda lives.

Those days have alway

This is a historian's love story. There is a great history of Egypt in the time of Moses, down to the social details. Great descriptions of places and traditions, gods and people. However, it's not the best love story; the story is predictable. The adventure is written better, but you'd expect that from a male Egyptologist of this time period. I liked t it best as a snapshot of daily Egyptian life.
Good book for those, who have a deep interest in ancient Egypt. This book is more for school reading rather than a mature reader.

Georg Moritz Ebers, German Egyptologist and novelist, discovered the Egyptian medical papyrus, of ca 1550 BCE, named for him (see Ebers papyrus) at Luxor (Thebes) in the winter of 1873–74.

Ebers early conceived the idea of popularizing Egyptian lore by means of historical romances. Eine ägyptische Königstochter was published in 1864 and obtained great success. His subsequent works of the same kind—

“Our deepest sorrows always flow from the same source as might have filled us with joy, and those wounds burn the fiercest which are inflicted by a hand we love.” 0 likes
“When the draught of happiness which the Gods prepare for some few men, seems to flow clearest and purest, Fate rarely fails to infuse into it some drop of bitterness. And yet we should not therefore disdain it, for it is that very drop of bitterness which warns us to drink of the joys of life thankfully, and in moderation.” 0 likes
