Egypt’s Sister: A Novel of Cleopatra
A believable story incorporating what little is known
Mrs. Hunt wonderfully crafted a believable story around what little is known about Cleopatra, and created in me a yearning to reach outside of the fiction world to read that we know for myself.
About the Book
I enjoy reading Angela Hunt because I’ve learned that she will beautifully weave and incredible about of history and culture into her storyline so that I don’t just enjoy a character’s journey but learn about a time and a place as well. This story did not disappoint, and she expertly wove in details of the rich and poor, the Jews, Romans, and Egyptians, the learned and the commoner. Mrs. Hunt wonderfully crafted a believable story around what little is known about Cleopatra and created in me a yearning to reach outside of the fiction world to read that we know for myself. You can enjoy this story for the spiritual journey of Chava itself, or you can slow down and learn more about the cultures and thought processes that caused the political intrigues and clashes of the time. Either way, it’s a really good book.
