It encouraged me to read the rest in the series, which I am currently doing.
I have been a Pauline Gedge fan for a long time, starting with Child of the Morning.
She also lives near Wainwright Alberta where my daughter-in-law used to cash out her groceries at the grocery store.

Pauline Gedge is an excellent writer, at least for my tastes, though her characters aren't always painted in a likeable fashion [Lady of the Reeds is one example - the main character in that book has some serious shortcomings and does some downright rotten things], but this book's main character is one you consistently root for.
Looking forward to reading the next book!
It is based on the true events....you can check them w/ any good reference on Ancient Egypt. Pauline Gedge makes the characters come alive, and their time and different way of life make sense....
I don't want to give any plot spoilers!
Just be sure you read her "afterward" which summarizes the known history of this period, to see how well she researched the era.
