Child of the Morning

Child of the Morning - Pauline Gedge This was an interesting look into the life of Hatshepsut. I enjoyed the read. It was quick and easy. It took me about eight hours to get through this book.

Hatshepsut was a queen was who dared to proclaim herself Pharoah. She dreamed of a peaceful Egypt, and she was determined to bring prosperity to her kingdom. In making herself pharoah, she passed over the boy who should have become King, and kept him in the wings for years, while his angered smoldered and his passion smoldered for a woman who would never be his, and who scorned but loved him all the same.

Interesting read for those who are interested in Egyptian history!
