it was amazing

This book is a great journey through history, geography, religions all focused two main questions: "Was the Queen of Sheba real? Or was she a symbol of trade opening in Israel under the reign of Solomon?" The author physically travels to the parts of the world that have the Queen of Sheba aka the Queen of the South aka Balkis/Bilqis/Makena as part of their cultures. An in-depth, thoughtful examination of a legendary female that took me along for a great ride.
