But this isn't just dry history. The real Hatshepsut was, no doubt, a remarkable woman, but Madden has painted a portrait of a woman of passion, as well as compassion and intelligence. When the Pharaoh, her husband-brother. dies leaving no successor but the infant child of a harem wife, Hatshepsut is left to rule as regent. But when the god, Amun, reveals that her destiny is to be king, she sets about making it happen. Through positive action, generosity to peasants, respectful relationships with the priests, and an ambitious building program, she is accepted and respected by all.
<i>The Pharaoh's Destiny</i> is a fascinating and compelling historical account with a few fictional elements thrown in. Madden has expertly woven the history and architecture of Egypt into a love story and an homage to the first woman king of Egypt. Very worth the read.
The author provides a map at the beginning of the book of the Egyptian land she ruled along the Nile and a glossary of terms at the end of the book.
A very powerful image of a female ruler exhibiting both strength and caring for her family and the people of her land.
The book is filled with the customs and the religious rituals of the time blended into the story.
The author does a really nice job balancing descriptions, actions, and emotions.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I recommend it if you enjoy historical romance novels.
