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.

    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.

    Angela Hunt is an exceptional writer who once again has written an incredible story. This particular novel of Cleopatra, was so well written that I honestly can't even begin to tell you how impressed I am. This book wasn't just whipped up overnight... Angela Hunt clearly did her homework and knew what she was writing about.

    The main character in this book isn't Cleopatra herself, but her childhood friend Chava. Through Chava's eyes, we see what life is like for royalty, commoners and slaves. The only thing I wish this book had, was a bit more closure. I love closure, and yes, I could imagine how it would have all played out, but I would have preferred to have read it. I would have rated this book a 5 star had there been just a chapter or two more.

    All that being said, I would highly recommend reading Egypt's Sister if you love historical fiction, or if you are interested in what life might have been like back in Cleopatra's day and age. It takes a couple chapters to get into it, but once you do, I just know you'd love it!

    I'm not a fan of ancient history settings and stories, but anything by Angela Hunt is a must-read for me. True to form, she swept me into the story and held my attention throughout the novel. Hunt seamlessly intertwines fact and fiction in this captivating tale of friendship, power, and faith. Her impeccable research add depth and rich historical detail without dragging the story down or making it read like a textbook. Set in the intertestamental period, also known as the Silent Years, the time between the Old and New Testaments when God did not speak to his people through prophets, Egypt's Sister is a reminder that God is always present even when He is silent. I completely loved this novel and couldn't set it aside until the last page was turned. Don't miss this fascinating story!

    Egypts Sister by Angela Hunt

    Chava lived a charmed life as the daughter of Cleopatras royal tutor. She grew up in the palace and the princess was her best friend. Even though she was Jewish and Cleopatra was Egyptian, Chava expected her life in the royal palace to continue unchanged. But after Cleopatras coronation, the politics and intrigue of power change the queen and she betrays Chava and sentences her to a life of slavery. Chava believes she will see Cleopatra again, but will it be too late?

    Angela Hunt is one of my favorite authors. I can count on enjoying her novels. This was no exception. However, Egypts Sister took me much longer to reach the cant put it down stage because of the detailed historical foundation that needed to be laid. Once that was done, I was caught up in the devastating changes that Chava experienced.

    Although laying the historical background made for a slow beginning, the information that the author included about the culture and life in Alexandria and Rome made a fascinating background for the story. I loved learning more about that particular time in history. The authors research was meticulous and it showed.

    As always, Hunts characters were interesting and life-like. Cleopatra, one of historys most infamous women, was especially fascinating. Her motivation to remain in control of Egypt made sense in light of her actions.

    The prevailing theme of Egypts Sister was one of hope. Despite Chavas devastating circumstances, she persisted in believing God. Even through suffering and in the midst of a pagan culture, Chava proved Gods faithfulness.

    Readers who enjoy historical fiction will enjoy this book. I received a free copy for my honest review.
