Publisher's Summary

"You will be called Anippe, daughter of the Nile. Do you like it?" Without waiting for a reply, she pulls me into her squishy, round tummy for a hug. I'm trying not to cry. Pharaoh's daughters don't cry. When we make our way down the tiled hall, I try to stop at ummi Kiya's chamber. I know her spirit has flown, yet I long for one more moment. Amenia pushes me past so I keep walking and don't look back. Like the waters of the Nile, I will flow.

Anippe has grown up in the shadows of Egypt's good god Pharaoh, aware that Anubis, god of the afterlife, may take her or her siblings at any moment. She watched him snatch her mother and infant brother during childbirth, a moment that awakened in her a terrible dread of ever bearing a child. Now she is to be become the bride of Sebak, a kind but quick-tempered Captain of Pharaoh Tut's army. In order to provide Sebak the heir he deserves yet protect herself from the underworld gods, Anippe must launch a series of deceptions, even involving the Hebrew midwives - women ordered by Tut to drown the sons of their own people in the Nile.

When she finds a baby floating in a basket on the great river, Anippe believes Egypt's gods have answered her pleas, entrenching her more deeply in deception and placing her and her son, Mehy, whom handmaiden Miriam calls Moses, in mortal danger. As bloodshed and savage politics shift the balance of power in Egypt, the gods reveal their fickle natures, and Anippe wonders if her son, a boy of Hebrew blood, could one day become king. Or does the god of her Hebrew servants, the one they call El Shaddai, have a different plan - for them all?

Highly recommended

If you like historical novels set during Biblical times surrounding the lives of Biblical persons, you will enjoy this intreagueing story. I thank the author for her masterful way of building realistic situations that have universal application. I was blessed, entertained, and challenged to apply the ways of faith.

Sooo good, but then...brick wall

Would you listen to The Pharaoh's Daughter CA again? Why?

YES! It is addictive, intelligently written, and I enjoyed it very much.

Any additional comments?

The thing I did not like, is that there is a series of books here but this appears to be the only one available in audiobook format. For all I can tell, the continuing story simply is not available to listen to, and neither the publisher nor the author have answered my queries on the subject, as of yet. I hate it when I get sucked into a good book and then find the rest of the series inaccessible.

Good Story

I am only disappointed with the narrators accent for the Hebrews. To me it sounds like German Baby Talk and made the Hebrews sound ignorant.

Mesu, Thank you for a very good story and all your research.

slow start, strong finish. fascinating

a inspiring story of faith, a detailed history lesson, and an intricate plot. Robin Miles, as usual, superbly draws in the reader so that multiple characters are distinct

I felt as if I lived among the Hebrews....

I couldn’t stop listening. The story and history were so fascinating. It’s fresh look at a story we all knew as children. The narration was exceptionally good and just added to the overall experience. I am looking forward to the second book, Miriam being added to the Audible offerings. I can’t wait.

The accents were not good?

The story was interesting. However, I do not understand why the narrarator chose to use German accents for the Hebrew characters. I think she was going for more of a Ashkenazi jew from Europe accent. I do not believe the ancient hebrews sound like this, it really threw me. The term nubian is throwing me as well. Since ancient Egyptians (as well as ancient hebrews) were black skinned people that would make them all nubians? Egypt is in Africa and all Kings and Queens in Africa were black skinned people. I find it hard to believe that people are still walking around thinking white people ruled Egypt. Please research this. I really enjoy Mesu Andrews story telling and how she weaves fact and fiction. Her biblical research is usually great. I have read all of her books and some are amongst my favorite in biblical Christian books. Unfortunately, this one has been my least favorite.

Impressed

I have been an audible customer for several years and I loved the way the book tied in a historical reference to a fictional story. The ending gave me hope. I thought it was also narrated well. The first time I’m giving a rating of 5 stars. Thank you.
