Publisher's Description

New York Times Bestselling Author's Newest Biblical-Era Series

Five decades before the birth of Christ, Chava, daughter of the royal tutor, grows up with Urbi, a princess in Alexandria's royal palace. When Urbi becomes Queen Cleopatra, Chava vows to be a faithful friend no matter what--but after she and Cleopatra have an argument, she finds herself imprisoned and sold into slavery.

Torn from her family, her community, and her elevated place in Alexandrian society, Chava finds herself cast off and alone in Rome. Forced to learn difficult lessons, she struggles to trust a promise HaShem has given her. After experiencing the best and worst of Roman society, Chava must choose between love and honor, between her own desires and God's will for her life.

    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.

    A copy of this book was given to me by the publisher. All opinions are my own.

    Egypt's Sister by author Angela Hunt is a rich historical read that we are given a front row seat to watch as the events of the rise of the Roman Empire take place. We take this journey with Chava a young Jewish woman who has grown up as the best friend of Urbi (future Cleopatra) in Alexandria the center of knowledge and education. I would say that this is a coming of age story that shows the growth and maturity of Chava, as she watches the world around her and the world that she thought she knew change so abruptly that it was frightening.

    Chava is at first a very nave and stubborn young lady in her views and her opposition to marriage that her father so wants her to do. She is also very loyal to her best friend, Cleopatra, so much so that she forgoes the whole idea of marriage to anyone so that she may be at Cleopatra's side and her beck in call. I considered this rather foolish of her, understanding the whys but I just felt that she was very narrow minded in her conclusions. The author did an excellent job at showing her growth especially after all she had to endure. We also get a look at what being a friend to a very powerful political person would look like. There is great betrayal and hardship that Chava must endure yet she meets some of the most powerful men of that time; Julius Caesar, Octavian, Marc Antony, and Agrippa.

    There was much to process as I read this book; the history I was familiar with but the author really shined a new light on the brutality of the ruling Triumvirate that was very frightening. This was a gritty, lush historical that focuses on the time of history and the set up for when the long awaited Messiah would arrive into the world. And as always, I appreciated the author's notes on what was real and what was fiction.

    A quote from the book that has really stuck with me is found on pg. 265 by Chava: "I kept thinking of something I once read from Euripides: "Those whom God wishes to destroy, he first makes mad."

    I received a copy of this novel for free from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

    I'm a big fan of Angela Hunt. She is a gifted storyteller and creates beautiful Biblical Fiction. She puts a lot of research and dedication into her writing, and many of her characters are based on real people in history.

    With that said, this isn't one of my favorites that she's written. It is a good story, but it didn't fully captivate me. I found myself putting the book down and not being in a hurry to pick it back up. Although I wasn't fully invested in Cleopatra, Chava gave me reason I continued on.

    The aspect I loved about this book was Chava's unique and intriguing relationship with God. Her faith is touching and carried the story, but I wish the pacing was a bit more steady.

    Overall, this is a good story (but not great like the other books I've read by this author!)

    Expected more along the lines of the Joseph trilogy that Hunt did some years ago. Just felt this story was simply contrived to fit between the pages of a book. Characters were either very developed or left waning. Plot was a given in some areas, but twisted far too much in others. Just didn't have the drive to finish it and when I did I just 'closed the book'.

    Angela Hunt has done it again! Wow! Wow! WOW!

    Chava is a young woman who's grown up with a lot of privilege. Her family is not hurting for money, and they are in very good standing in the community. I mean, she's best friends with an Egyptian princess for crying out loud! Until standing up for what she believes results in her enslavement...

    If you've been hanging around my accounts for awhile, you know that Biblical Fiction has become one of my favorite genres. Why? Because it makes you think about things in or surrounding Bible times to which we have become desensitized in our daily lives. While Egypt's Sister is set during The Silent Years (the time period between The Old Testament and The New Testament), it is still a very powerful story! And the rich history! I have never felt so woefully uninformed in all my life - with the exception of my freshman Algebra class. However, the history was not dry and boring, but naturally woven into the fast-moving plot.

    I found it very moving to read about how God used Chava's sudden fall in society to not only humble her heart, but also to teach her about who she really was in Him. This is a girl power book at it's finest! Egypt's Sister also showcases the power behind God's words and how He can work even the worst situation for good.

    Five Stars - An extraordinary look into life during The Silent Years. Egypt's Sister is a must read for fans of Biblical Fiction!

    I received a copy of Egypt's Sister by Angela Hunt from Bethany House Publishers, a division of Baker Publishing Group. All opinions expressed are my own.
