You Don’t Know Her Name. The World Remembers Only Her Greatest Friend: Cleopatra.
Raised together in the Alexandrian palace, Chava, the Hebrew daughter of the royal tutor, and Urbi, an Egyptian princess, become as close as sisters–and rivals with their dreams of greatness. When Urbi unexpectedly ascends the throne as Queen Cleopatra, Chava believes their bond is strong enough to survive. But absolute power has a way of changing everything.
The ultimate betrayal rips Chava from everything she’s ever known and sends her to the lowest rung of Roman society where she must choose between love and honor, between her own desires and God’s will for her life, if she hopes to rise again.
My thoughts and giveaway:
Oh my. Angela Hunt knows how to write a powerful and compelling book.
I found it so interesting because I wondered what could ever happen to keep these two friends apart? They had such a special bond. But I had to keep reading to find out and then find out how it would be resolved.
I love the fact that Angela took this from “the silent years” between the old and new testament. So interesting what she came up with and how she incorporated history into it.
If you like Biblical fiction (although this technically isn’t) this is a must read.
