5 stars all the way!

Impressive. That's the word I would choose if I could only pick one to describe The Pharaoh's Daughter. Every page shows Mesu Andrews's flawless research and exquisite attention to detail.

Mesu Andrews has so vividly painted the Egyptian landscape and life 4,000 years ago that I became totally immersed in the story. The Pharaoh's Daughter is such a unique look into a time long gone. Not only does the author tell the beautiful parts of history but also the harshness and danger of living as a part of the Egyptian royal family and as a slave. The book isn't gory but is rather true to life as it was then.

By turns I felt sympathy for Anippe and the impossible life she must lead, wondered at her choices, and even disliked her. Mesu Andrews has masterfully penned characters that become very real to the reader. I reacted to the characters in The Pharaoh's Daughter in as varied a manner as I would with real people.

Mesu Andrews latest Biblical fiction title is an amazing must read, one that I would give an unreserved 5 Stars to and would recommend to any of my friends who enjoy Christian fiction. I am most anxiously awaiting the next book in what I know will be an exciting and wonderful series.
