The Pharaoh's Daughter by Mesu Andrews ~ Review

The Pharaoh's Daughter (Treasures of the Nile)Review:

Anippe grew up afraid of the mysterious gods and their wrath, when her brother Tut arranges her marriage to the captain of his army, Sebak. She begins to worry about providing Sebak with an heir to bring him honor, and when she finds the Hebrew baby, Moses in the basket by the Nile, she is convinced that it is a sign. As the political tides shift and change, she begins to wonder if her son could be the next pharaoh...

This is a rich historical novel, well written and lush with historical details. I did find it had to follow at first with the many characters with their multiple names and similar hard to pronounce names, but after I had it figured out it wasn't so bad, especially since it was realistic and traditional to their culture.

I loved how Ms. Andrews so wonderfully blends history and fiction, especially tackling the difficult to trace Egyptian bloodlines.

Overall, a well written story with many characters, and a setting that brings the story to life.
