The late Evelyn Sova, wife and mother, poured her lifelong fascination with ancient Egypt into her book HATSHEPSUT-QUEEN TO KING, a gripping and potent examination of the life of the 5th pharaoh in the 18th dynasty of Egypt.
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Evelyn Sova’s poignant work tells the story of a remarkable woman who ruled Egypt about 1500 years before the more well known Cleopatra, and was, by most accounts considered to be the greatest female ruler in history. She opened trade routes with other countries, re-opened the Sinai mines for gold, and vigorously promoted Egypt's agriculture and the arts, particularly architecture. To better relate to her people, who were not used to a female ruler, she frequently appeared in male pharaoh robes and a fake beard.
Despite her "peacetime" reign, Hatshepsut's personal life was anything but. Being a female ruler, she had many political enemies. After her death, her enemies tried to erase her name from history by destroying all the monuments she had built that has her image and/or name inscribed on. Her mummy was stolen and has never been definitively found.
Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchase “Hatshepsut- Queen to King” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
