Egypt's Sister by Angela Hunt
Chava, a Jewish Scholar’s daughter, is the close childhood friend of the girl who would become Queen Cleopatra of Egypt. This follow her story from when she was the trusted companion of Cleopatra through and beyond the rest of Cleopatra’s life. She finds out the age old truth that politics and ambition trump friendship. Apparently motives and intrigue and political gain were much the same in that age as in this. Angela Hunt, as always, did a phenomenal job of researching the time period and the people involved. While Chava is a fictional character, she could very well have been in the position she is in this story. The story is fascinating, as are all of Angela Hunt’s novels, and although I have read biographies of Cleopatra before, this gave new insight and interest to the subject.
I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for a review and I am so pleased to add it to my collection of Angela Hunt books. Thank you Bethany House and thank you Angela Hunt for another great story.
