We have two quirky cats, ghost cat Sasha and live cat Cleo, and the four of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die.

Reviewed by Author Anna del C. Dye. for Readers' Favorite

What a fun ride I have had reading this time travel romance! It is a great mix between ancient Egyptian life and culture and the romance a woman from our twenty-first century. It is beautifully crafted to please historians and romance lovers of every age. Although it is a romance book, I was very pleased to see that it is a clean, wholesome tale.

The story is that of Maggie Owen, whose dream of being an Egyptologist and college professor digging into the sands of Egypt becomes a reality when she is offered a grant to spend three months digging near the Great Pyramids. All goes well until an Egyptian guide gives her an amulet to ward off evil, and then she finds an identical amulet in the tomb of Ramose, a great warrior of Egyptian times. She tentatively puts the two together and in the next moment she is standing in the long dead past—Egyptian history before Christ. How she gets there and when she will come back are the least of her problems. At this ancient time, women are of a lesser value, even slaves to the men.

How does a twenty-first century free woman deal with all those problems? Well, you will have to read this entertaining book and find out, like I did. I am sure that this adventure will easily become one of your favorites. This book teaches how a sweet person (be it a man, a woman or a child) can make a difference in the lives of many. I would recommend this book for readers older than fourteen, especially adults.
