A stunning story about Nefertiti told from the perspective of her younger sister.

I'm not very familiar with the history of Egypt aside from a few facts here and there. This book was based in a large part on what stories can be gleaned from the artwork of the time period. Nefertiti was quite the powerful figure and her story is a heart-breaking one - despite all of her faults.

Very highly recommended - especially for those who enjoy historical novels with a good base in actual history.

In addition, the descriptions.. I don't know how to describe them. I felt as if I was swept back and could see it all. There was so much detail. I recently saw an exhibition of King Tut here in Atlanta and I could picture the very items that I'd seen there. Michelle Moran is a beautiful writer and able to describe clearly and simplistically the details of that era.
