Hatshepsut: Daughter of Amun
by Moyra Caldecott
Ancient Egypt 3500 years ago - a land ruled by the all-powerful female king, Hatshepsut. Ambitious, ruthless and worldly: a woman who established Amun as the chief god of Egypt, bestowing his Priesthood with unprecedented riches and power. A story of vision and obsession, of mighty projects and heartbreaking failures - a story of a woman possessed by the desire for power and the need to love.
