Nefertiti by Michelle Moran

Another story about ancient Egypt. Told by Nefertiti's sister, Mutnodjmet. Nefertiti marries Amunhotep, who may have killed his brother in order to become Pharaoh. Amunhotep's mother hopes Nefertiti will stabilize him, but Nefertiti is ambitious as well. There is much intrigue at court, and all Mutny wants is a quiet life away from court with her garden. At the end, I really couldn't put it down. I rate it 4 out of 5.

Hi there! Thanks for your comments on my kudzu and for marking me as an Etsy fave! You will get two entries this week! I am fascinated by stories of Nefertiti. She sounds so exotic. A powerful woman in a time when that was rare. :-)
