Then the stars went out for the bark of Ra in fiery splendor burst out of the East Sunshine flooded the wide desert and the long green valley of the Nile The night was over a new day has dawned for the land of Egypt Generally I do not reread books I have a short attention span I constantly seek novelty and once a book or a film has been watched even if I greatly enjoyed it I will never reach for it again There are only a few books that I enjoy rereading Mara Daughter of the Nile has been one I have reached for repeatedly since I first read it and fell in love with it as a 12 year old girl A few years ago I donated a enormous amount of books after reluctantly admitting to myself that I will never touch them again after the initial reading this book still occupies a place on my currently tiny and trimmed down collection of paperbacks and it s going nowhereCall it nostalgia if you will but this is such a lovely little book and it has occupied a dear space in my heart ever since This is a solidly middle grade novel but I find that a great middle grade novel is a wonderful thing They are so essential to hook in a young reader and instill in them a love of reading that lasts a lifetime These books have themes they have believable loveable flawed characters There s no psychoanalysis reuired of the characters but they send such an important message to a young reader you can be better than you think you can be a good person you can aim for higher than what you believe yourself capable A small person can make a differenceThe story is simple the plot is straightforward There is no overwhelming theme here of existence no aspirations to grandeur yet I love it just the same I do confess to being a great fan of Ancient Egypt The mythology the people the history while I have read many books within this setting telling stories of such exalted characters as Cleopatra Nefertiti King Tutankhamen this wee book remains my favorite in the sadly rare genre of Egyptian fictionMara is a slave she was not always one but that has been her life for as long as she can remember She is a foreign born slave captured with her late mother Mara has blue eyes which is reviled and feared by her master and is different from most slaves in that she has been previously educated in reading and writing She also has a valuable commodity the ability to speak Babylonian It is for this purpose that ueen Hatshepsut s man initially buys her she is to spy upon Prince Thutmose through his future bride Mara is to play the interpreter for Princess the Canaanite princess InanniThrough a twist of fate Mara ends up playing the unwilling double agent with none the wiser She ends up being a pawn for Lord Sheftu who is working secretly in support of placing Prince Thutmose on the throne in place of his devious destructive pharaoh sister ueen HatshepsutMara has no choice She cannot reveal her role to either To do so would be to risk death truly for the life of a slave is worth absolutely nothing to such powerful and wealthy men Eventually though Mara has to choose a side and one of her masters will prove himself to be a truly idealistic man who is working towards a better future for Egypt To get to her happy ending Mara must rely on her own wits throughout the intrigue throughout the danger She has to overcome her own prejudices and decide whether luxury and freedom is preferable to doing what she knows is rightdespite the fact that it could cost her everything including her lifeI loved Mara s determination Yes she is selfish initially but this is a girl who has been a slave mistreated ill fed feared for her freakish colored eyes of all things She has endured hardship beating and so when she is given a chance at freedom she takes it And boy does she love what that little taste of freedom has to bring The clothes were not too lavishbut to her it was unimaginable luxury And as she shook the garments out one by one and looked at them she felt again the fierce determination that nothing nobody must stand in the way of her possessing such things always freedom and gold and a life worth living gardens with lotus blooming in the fishpoolrows and rows of papyrus scrolls on the shelves in a beautiful roomSo she dreamed Mara is not perfect despite being a slave she feels herself to be a true Egyptian and looks down upon the foreign princess Inanni Mara is patronizing towards Inanni s full figure which is admired by her people but reviled by the Egyptians who prefer a slim silhouette Inanni s strange clothes her customs her fear towards anything Egyptian is viewed condescendingly by the haughty Mara Eventually Mara grows to realize her own faults and realizes that she has been underestimating her princess strengths There is some romance in here nothing too steamy nothing inappropriate at all for the middle grade audience It grows step by step there is no insta love as enemies grow to be friends and then perhaps something I absolutely loved the bits of Egyptian culture in this book The descriptions of food of customs of cosmetics and clothing of daily minutiae I don t find that the adult novels of this nature does so well in the descriptions of little details as this one did The writing is beautiful the speech pattern is strange in some way but does not feel out of place in this setting I actually really loved the formal slightly archaic uality of the speech in this book The descriptions are beautifully described in the way that Eloise McGraw does so well in all her children s booksHighly recommended for anyone of any age Krv nije

Thanks for the buddy read Jeannette D Mara Daughter of the Nile was originally published back in 1953 and I find that books that were written during that time always make me think of old movies It s the way the characters talk and interact with each other The hero doesn t just kiss the heroine He pulls her into his arms and gives her a grand sweeping kiss that should have music playing in the background Now don t get me wrong I happen to love this because I think it s breathlessly romantic It s like they put every bit of sexual tension and wrapped it up in that one kiss I can t help but think though that it s a characteristic of that time period which sort of dates it And like an old movie the book moved a little bit slower The middle dragged This is why I knocked a star I think the writing is lovely thoughI liked the characters especially Mara and Inanni and their friendshipI have to commend Eloise Jarvis McGraw for her excellent research and the descriptive way she brings ancient Egypt to life McGraw adds all these lovely details which made me think of old Egyptian art and artifacts Although I m much of a Hatshepsut fangirl than McGraw is In fact I felt a little like Mara was helping the wrong side because let s face it Hatshepsut was awesome Sheftu argues that the ueen spends too much money on buildings but what does he want to do build up the army so they can go raid the borders Whatever Sheftu Let s face it guys you re just annoyed that the Pharaoh is a woman a very successful woman But anyway I did enjoy this and highly recommend it to ancient Egypt fans
