Overview

The first and most famous of Joan Grant's "Far Memory" novels, Winged Pharaoh brings the grandeur, beauty, and mystery of ancient Egypt to life.

Winged Pharaoh is the story, told in the first person, of a co-ruler of Egypt of the First Dynasty-Sekeeta, a priestess rigorously trained in the temple, joined in ceremonial marriage to her brother Neyah. Sekeeta's happy childhood, her training for command, a brief love affair resulting in the birth of a daughter, the repulse of a foreign invasion and a fulfilled old age make up the skeleton of the account of a life and way of life so full that one could be tempted to think the author must have lived it.

As a child growing up in Edwardian England, Joan Grant became aware of an astonishing ability to remember previous lifetimes, and as an author professed her seven novels to be based on her personal recollections of other incarnations, male and female, in ancient civilisations.

"I have been enthralled by the book as by nothing I have read for years," said London's Sunday Times when it came out in 1937, and the New York Times praised its "fine idealism, deep compassion and a spiritual quality pure and bright as a flame."
