    "My name is Nefret, which means 'pretty.' My mother says that I'm lucky, too."

    At just ten years old, Nefret becomes a handmaiden to Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Egypt. Life in the royal palace is never dull for Nefret—her queen loves dressing up in fine clothes and hosting lavish banquets. But there are times of sadness, too. Cleopatra's determination to rule Egypt will lead her to fall in love with two powerful men, Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, which in turn leads to troubled times...

    Nefret's diary tells of a turbulent moment in ancient Egypt. It's a young girl's insight into a fascinating period of history as well as a story told from the heart.

    An illustrated reference chapter provides further information on ancient Egypt.
