Acknowledgments[]

"A big thank you to Dr. Kathryn Piquette, formerly of the Institute of Archaeology, University College London, for her many helpful comments, tactfully relayed, about the text of Princess of Egypt. Any historical inaccuracies are now the result of my obstinacy and not her scholarship.
And to Nahla, whose love of the country of her birth has been an inspiration, and who it turns out, was once a roof-runner too!
"

Notes[]

  • The illustration of Asha on the cover was illustrated by Richard Jones.
