Mara Daughter of the Nile is a magnificent book, I have read it multiple times and my opinion of it only grows.
It is about a blue eyed slave girl who is dragged into the life of a double agent between Queen Hatshepsut and
her brother King Thutmose. To go further would be to provide spoilers but I will say that this book is a great
love story and suitable for ages 10 and up.

Lieder Madchen, April 22, 2011 (view all comments by Lieder Madchen)
I love, love, love this book. It is wonderful to meet a character as vivid and intense as Mara. I love the delight she takes in being so devious, the triumph she feels at her own cleverness, the defiance she throws at the world. At first she wishes only for her own gain, but slowly she finds things she yearns for more than wealth and power. She is one of my favorite characters ever.

Anyone could fall in love with Sheftu. Enigmatic, witty, charming and handsome, he is determined not to be distracted by anything. He is so fervent in his beliefs that Thutmose will be good for Egypt. Not for the nobles, the land, or himself; Egypt. He is so focused, until, of course, a certain blue-eyed slave girl crosses his path and plays havoc with his carefully-laid plans.

The writing, the setting, the language, the dialogue, the characters, the romance, the adventure...Oh, this is a beautiful book! Technically, it is not the most historically accurate of tales, but when it was written there was very little known about Hatshepsut or Thutmose, so you can't really blame the author. After reading it I looked up what really happened. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

I first read this book in Jr. High. I reread it multiple times. It has everything; a great read.
