"Historically accurate and still enchanting love story"
Elizabeth Delisi's LADY OF THE TWO LANDS is an interesting
time-travel that takes us back to the time of Hatshepsut
and her royal architect, Senemut.
The story plays off the true facts of the female pharaoh's
reign and the suspected romance between her and Senemut.
Research shows that Hatshepsut did indeed rule the two
lands of upper and lower Egypt, and her temple was one of
the most beautiful ever created, though after her death,
many images of her were destroyed in an apparent attempt
to erase her memory from history.
What Ms. Delisi tells is her version of the rule and she
concentrates on the relationship between the female
pharaoh and the man she trusted more than any other,
Senemut. It is a very carefully rendered insight into the
lives of both and the relationship that ensues.
LADY OF THE TWO LANDS is a well-researched story that will
take you back in time to an ancient Egypt where magic was
never doubted and the impossible made possible.
