eaglerock1 Stars Out Of 5Dangerous Message in the StoryJuly 24, 2020eaglerockQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1The main male character is violent with the main female character, yet she falls in love with him, risks her life for him, and they have a happily ever after marriage at the end. This is not the message I want to send my daughter. Any man who even threatens to hurt her should be avoided, not seen as attractive. Also, I do not want my son to read this and think that a man can behave this way, yet still get the girl in the end. Instead, he should expect to receive a jail sentence if he treated someone this way. I think the fact that this is one of a small list of historical fiction books set in ancient Egypt, is not a good enough excuse to include it in multiple homeschool curricula.
