This novel is perfect for readers who aren't quite sure they want to read a historical novel. Surprise! The novel is a cross between ancient Egypt and Chicago, a "God's Wife" and a Chicago Dancer. This novel was very well-researched though, the reader will be able to immerse him/herself in both ancient Egypt and Chicago.


The main characters, Rebecca and Neferet, will become friends to the reader. The reader will root for them to pursue their hopes and dreams and escape from bad situations. Rebecca is a dancer who has the chance of her lifetime-a major role-while Neferet is given a title with incredible prestige-"God's Wife." Both are threatened by people around them, even those who should be happy for them or watching out for them.


This book is rare in that it contains three strong female characters, the evil stepmother of Neferet, Rebecca, and Neferet. The three characters complement each other perfectly, blending to bring the reader a terrific, exciting book filled with mystery, romance, and intrigue. This book is highly recommended to young adults/adults.

I was pleasantly surprised by the first few chapters of the book, but things went progressively downhill at chapter six. It appears that there is quite a bit of the story missing and I was forced to re-read a bit to make sure it wasn't just me blanking out in the middle of my reading session!

The ending could have used a bit more work. It felt rushed and didn't really seem to satisfy.
