Lady of the Reeds
She grew up on the reed-lined banks of the upper Nile in the twelfth century B.C. but she was not like the other villagers. Intelligent and ambitious, Thu is convinced that her destiny is greater than to marry a peasant, breed sons and raise crops. When Hui, aristocrat, seer and healer, anchors his barge at the local temple near Aswat, she swims to it, the start of a very long journey. Trained by Hui, she becomes Lady Hui, personal physician and beloved concubine of Ramses III. But she wants still more. She is determined that her life will matter. Even if it means slaying a god.
