Not Barbara Rosenblat

by anne c on Jun 1, 2012

The book is wonderful, and the audio recording is acceptable. However, Barbara Rosenblat already made a fantastic recording of this book, using different voices, which truly captured the characters

OUTSTANDING

by Evelyn T on May 19, 2011

I found an Elizabeth Peters book in 1997. After reading I went back to book one and read every one in sequence. When I caught up I waited expectantly each year for the next one. I felt as if I was part of the family watching each member grow up and mature. Every time I recommend these books to someone, they have the same reaction. When there are no more books on the Emerson family, I will feel as if I lost contact with my family. You must read each book in sequence. I have traveled to Egypt and the history is absolutely accurate. I wish I had read these books before visiting Egypt in 1985 and then I would have had a greater understanding of the monuments and people. Elizabeth Peters is the romantic and historical equivalent of Clive Cussler.

Delightful tale set in Egypt of a feisty heroine with a fascination of tombs and mummies and suspenseful adventures that lead to true romance.

Great book, great service!

by maryannwb on Sep 30, 2010

This book has been a great favorite of mine. It finally occurred to me to buy the book instead of depending on the local library to obtain it from one of their many branches. The seller provided a great copy of the book at a most reasonable price and the service was outstanding. Would definitely deal with this seller again.
