Dreaming of the Nile is a novel about a woman's spiritual quest. Leila Martin, a thirtysomething journalist living in Los Angeles, is suffering from a chronic case of fatigue and depression. Having exhausted medical possibilities, she embarks on a spiritual search in an attempt to cure her malaise.

After attending a powerful sweat lodge she has a dream about a woman in Ancient Egypt called Hathor. Over the next few months, Leila learns about the life of women in Ancient Egypt and how spiritual beliefs were woven into the fabric of everyday life, and gradually this strengthens her.

But all is not rosy, and difficulties in Hathor's world have a powerful effect on Leila's life as she observes from another time and place. Leila's concerns for Hathor deepen her need to understand what is going on, and she is drawn into a romantic entanglement that may or may not turn out to be good for her.
