HATSHEPSUT- QUEEN TO KING
HATSHEPSUT, QUEEN TO KING, is a historical novel, geared to adult readers, telling the story of a remarkable woman who ruled Egypt about 1500 years before the more well known Cleopatra, and was, by most accounts. considered to be the greatest female ruler in history. Hatshepsut's "peaceful" reign was in Egypt's 18th Dynasty. She opened trade routes with other countries, re-opened the Sinai mines for gold, and vigorously promoted Egypt's agriculture and the arts, particularly architecture.
