This is a love story set in ancient Egypt. It’s about Joseph, a biblical character that I’m not too familiar with (not the one who married Mary), and Asenath and is told from Asenath’s point of view.
It begins with a very young Asenath who at the time was named Kiya. Her village is pillaged and she is enslaved and orphaned. She later goes to a temple of orphans where a very rich couple adopts her.
Asenath discovers that despite “having it all”, she is lonely and the society of nobility is not all it is cracked up to be.
