Half Term Giveaway (UK only)- The Wise Woman


Following the success of the Armchair BEA Giveaway, I'd like to announce a giveaway for The Wise Woman by Christian Jacq.

From the back cover:
Since the death of Ramses the Great, the villagers of the Palace of Truth must produce their best work to honour Egypt's greatest Pharaoh. And as the new master of work, Nefer the Silent bears the ultimate responsibility for all he oversees. But he is in mortal danger; Mehy, Chief Treasurer of Thebes and leader of the armed forces, continues to plot Nefer's downfall and to try to steal the Stone of Light. For Ubekhet, Nefer's wife, newly endowed with knowledge of the supernatural, the time has come to prove that she is worthy of the title she has been given- Wise Woman- and to protect her beloved husband from the evil that is haunting the Place of Truth.
I really love Christian Jacq's work. It is not just an historical novel, it is a journey into another world. The stories are interesting and the characters well developed. Plus, since the author is an Egyptologist, you are guaranteed that they will be pretty historically accurate.
