I enjoyed "Mara, Daughter of the Nile" very much. I would recommend it. It's a fictional story set during the last months of the rein of Hatshepsut in Egyp. The story focuses on Mara, a slave girl. Thanks to a perious master, she can read and speak Babylonian as well as Egyptian. One day she is bought and sent by her master to spy on the Pharaoh's son, the rightful heir to the throne. While traveling she meets another man who forces her to spy for the Pharaoh's son! How long can she remain a double agent?
