Sue’s November Recommendation

The Visitors by Sally Beauman

Sue says : “Fascinating fictionalization of the events surrounding the unveiling of King Tut’s tomb in 1922, through the eyes of an 11 year old girl. Beauman has done a tremendous amount of research into this historic event and her story is solidly based on the lives of the archaeologists who lived and worked in the Valley of the Kings.  I have never had a strong interest in Egyptology but this book certainly awakened my interest in the subject.  It compelled me to start the non-fiction book entitled, The Nile: A Journey Downriver Through Egypt’s Past and Present by Toby A.H. Wilkinson”
