So glad you enjoyed The Secret History! I've actually made the jump to early 20th century America, which has been quite a change. I've taught US History for almost ten years and I have a bit of an obsession with one of our presidential families, including their wild child daughter. (She'd give Theodora in her early days a run for her money!) (less)

Quotes by Stephanie Marie Thornton  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Years ago, Re had raged against humans for violating Ma’at, so he had sent Hathor to destroy mankind. She transformed into the lion goddess Sekhmet and Egypt’s fields ran red with the blood of her rampage. Seeing this, Re realized his mistake and ordered Sekhmet to stop, but she was too gone with bloodlust to listen. Knowing he had to halt her some other way, Re stained seven thousand jugs of beer with pomegranate juice and poured the red liquid into her path. Believing the beer to be blood, Sekhmet gorged herself and passed out in a drunken stupor. When she awoke, her bloodlust had passed and she returned to being Hathor. Thus the goddesses of love and violence shared a common history.”
Stephanie Thornton, Daughter of the Gods: A Novel of Ancient Egypt

“Far better to dare mighty things and fail mightily than to never dare at all.”
Stephanie Thornton, The Secret History: A Novel of Empress Theodora

“faithful, resolute, alive, You and the Two Lands that has no enemies; This life is no more than a dream, so seize the day before it passes!”
Stephanie Thornton, Daughter of the Gods: A Novel of Ancient Egypt
