2 girls, 1 a queen, but both will change history..

I really wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up Egypt's Sister, the back cover blurb sounded really good, as this is the first full-length novel that I've read by Angela Hunt. I'd previously one of her novellas in a completely different genre, it was good so I thought I'd give one of her historicals a shot.

I'll admit it, I had a really hard time getting into the story at first. Chava was so shallow and bordered on stupid sometimes. It was hard to get to know or even like her. But I did really enjoy the descriptions of ancient Alexandria and the rich cultural details about the Egyptians and Jews living in the city. However, as Chava's life started to unravel and eventually come completely apart I became engrossed in her story and long before the novel was over I had difficulty putting it down even for a moment.

Egypt's Sister is a lush look into the Silent Years of the Bible and into a history that had to take place in order to set the stage for the coming Savior. Angela Hunt has penned an exciting, and yes, gritty, tale of loss, love, and devotion. I, for one, am definitely looking forward to the next book in this series...

(I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are entirely my own.)
