I'm writing reviews of books I've read in the last year or so and sort of in the order that they were read.
I would like to suggest N.C. Allen's The Pharaoh's Daughter. I love History and Egypt and love stories and this book is all three rolled into one. While you read you feel as if you are on the ship or in the market or actually stuck in the cave. She writes to make you feel as if you are part of the group of people she is writing about and that is good. You forget that you are actually reading and you feel that you are part of the story. This is the second in a series and there are more. I have not read them yet, but they are on my to-read list. I think N.C. Allen's books should also be on your to-read list.
