Egypt’s Sister by Angela Hunt

The silent years, the time when God's people were waiting to hear from him, but word through the prophets just didn't come. This was hard time for so many people. Chava is a friend of Princess Urbi, AKA Cleopatra. However, that doesn't stay that way. Sold, into a life she didn't expect, separated from her alleged best friend, her home, and in great danger, I followed along mesermized by Chava's story.

What will happen to the Jewish daughter left to live as a slave? Is she hearing God in a time when so many feel that he has gone silent? 

This well worked novel mixes the Egypt that we know was, with the Jewish people. We know that happened too, from history and the Bible, making this a very strong historical fiction book with enough page turning power to keep me deeply involved in what was going to happen to Chava next. 

My copy came from Bethany House and Net Galley. I wasn't required to leave a positive review. 


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.
