The Woman Who Would Be King: Hatshepsut's Rise to Power in Ancient Egypt (Hardcover) by Kara Cooney


Copy from Bloggingforbooks.com for an honest review
Five stars
This is the second historical fiction I have read about Hatshepsut. The first one , Daughter of the Gods by Stephanie Thornton was fantastic. I was eager to read more about Hatshepsut since I knew very little about her. Dr. Cooney's "The Woman Who Would Be King" was based on her research but most was based on pieces of information because here is the deal-Hatshepsut was literally erased from Egyptian history. I absolutely love reading about her and her history. This was such a fascinating book and really it just made me crave more. Both Thornton and Cooney portray a Hatshepsut worthy of being king!
