    Dangerous Message in the Story

    The 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.
