Between The Pages - Egyptian Heart
By Kathryn Meyer Griffith
Maggie Owen is a beautiful, spirited and lonely Egyptologist. Even being in Egypt on a college grant doesn’t give her the happiness she hoped it would. There is something missing. Love.
Her workmen uncover Ramose Nakh-Min’s ancient tomb. An amulet hurls her back to 1340 B.C – where she meets noble Ramose, who faithfully serves the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaton and his queen Nefertiti.
She’s fallen into perilous times with civil war threatening Egypt. She’s mistaken for a runaway slave. With her blond hair, jinn green eyes and fair skin she doesn’t fit in. Some say she’s magical and evil. Ramose’s favorite, Makere, attempts to kill her.
The people, angry the pharaoh Akhenaton set his queen Nefertiti aside and forced them to worship his god--Aton rise up against him.
Maggie’s caught in the middle of it. Desperately in love with Ramose, can she stay alive and with him in ancient Egypt? Will she make a difference in his world and history?
Between The Pages of this story is a heroine who is strong and determined, and the perfect hero. Maggie and Ramose have an endearing chemistry that keeps the reader turning pages. The vivid descriptions of the scenery placed me in the middle of the hot desert. I thoroughly enjoyed Egyptian Heart and look forward to reading more by this author.
