MY REVIEW

 Any book by Kathryn Meyer Griffith is one I want on my reading list and this beauty is no exception. I loved my trip to Egypt with Maggie in this time travel, alternate history novel where she will cross the boundaries of time to find the the answer to the riddle of the lost necropolis and Nefertiti, and her one true love.
 
Maggie’s mother had warned her about life’s surprises…
 
“It’ll knock you on your butt all right.”
 
And she is finding how prophetic her words would be.
 
Maggie’s special talents, which she knew nothing about, were coming to the forefront since she arrived in Egypt. She had been searching for answers about the lost necropolis and Nefertiti, and wondering whether she would ever find love.
 
She never expected to find it here…Ramose.
 
It was so easy to get lost in Maggie’s world of ancient Egypt. I love what Kathryn Meyer Griffith did with the storyline and I was surprised at the ending. I never saw it coming and that is always a wonderful thing. Not so easy to surprise a prolific reader like me.
 
What would you sacrifice everything for the love of your life? Could she… Would she…be the one to change history? I lover her courage, determination and willingness to sacrifice it all.
 
I almost felt the dry breeze and the sand from the storm trying to peel the skin from my bones, the terror and abuse the citizens suffered at the hands of one so greedy and evil that he would stop at nothing to have what he desired.
 
Kathryn Meyer Griffith has a way of bringing her worlds and characters to life through words. The romance will cross the boundaries of time and I don’t think the ending is one you would anticipate. So…come on…travel to Egypt with us and learn its untold secrets.
 
I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Egyptian Heart by Kathryn Meyer Griffith.

GOODREADS BLURB

Maggie Owen is a beautiful, spirited Egyptologist…but lonely. Even being in Egypt on a grant from the college she teaches at to search for an undiscovered necropolis she’s certain lies below the sands beyond the pyramids of Gizah doesn’t give her the happiness she’d hoped it would. There has always been and is something missing. Love.

Then her workmen uncover Ramose Nakh-Min’s ancient tomb and an amulet from his sarcophagus hurls her back to 1340 B.C–where she falls hopelessly in love with the man she was destined to be with, noble Ramose, who faithfully serves the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaton and his queen Nefertiti.

She’s fallen into perilous times with civil war threatening Egypt. She’s been mistaken for one of Ramose’s runaway slaves and with her blond hair, jinn green eyes and fair skin she doesn’t fit in. Some say she’s magical and evil. Ramose’s favorite, Makere, attempts to kill her.

The people, angry the pharaoh Akhenaton has set his queen Nefertiti aside and he’s forced them to worship his god, Aton (instead of their many Egyptian gods), are rising up against him.

Maggie’s caught in the middle of it in a dangerous land and time she doesn’t belong in.

In the end, desperately in love with Ramose, will she find a way to stay alive and with him in ancient Egypt–and to make a difference in his world and history?
Because Maggie has finally found love.

ABOUT KATHRYN MEYER GRIFFITH

100_8628Since childhood I’ve been an artist and worked as a graphic designer in the corporate world and for newspapers for twenty-three years before I quit to write full time. But I’d already begun writing novels at 21, over forty-five years ago now, and have had twenty-six (six romantic horror, four thrillers, three horror novels, two romantic SF horror, one romantic suspense, one romantic time travel, one historical romance and eight murder mysteries) previous novels, two novellas and twelve short stories published from many traditional publishers since 1984. But since 2012 I’ve gone into self-publishing in a big way; and upon getting some of my older books’ full rights back for the first time in 33 years, have self-published all of them along with my newer novels. My four Dinosaur Lake novels and four Spookie Town Mysteries (Scraps of Paper, All Things Slip Away, Ghosts Beneath Us and Witches Among Us) are my best-sellers.

I’ve been married to Russell for thirty-nine years; have a son and two grandchildren and I live in a small quaint town in Illinois. We have a quirky cat, Sasha, and the three of us live happily in an old house in the heart of town. Though I’ve been an artist, and a folk/classic rock singer in my youth with my brother Jim, writing has always been my greatest passion, my butterfly stage, and I’ll probably write stories until the day I die…or until my memory goes.

  1. Sherry
    thank you so much for reading and reviewing my Egyptian Heart. It has been a constant steady seller for me. It was originally a 2007 Avalon hardcover and since 2014, when I got its full rights back, I’ve self-published it in eBook along with its paperback and audio book. It’s been one of my favorites because as a child I was always fascinated with ancient Egypt and, yes, I wrote many illustrated (by me) reports for school about the subject. I had written my horror novel THE CALLING first and had done so much ancient Egyptian research at the time that I decided to write another ancient Egyptian themed book before I forgot everything I’d learned. And my mother, God rest her soul, loved this book. She never cared much for my horror novels. This sweet romance was more up her alley.

    • I love your books so much, Kathryn. The ending of Egyptian Heart was fantastic. I kept trying to figure it out. I have read The Calling and its great that you could pen two novels about Egypt that are so different from each other. That cover is AMAZING!

    • Hi Kristen,
      it’s a stand alone novel. But I did publish another (spookier…ghost/horror) novel also with an ancient Egyptian theme: The Calling. And I also published a sexy short story with an ancient Egyptian theme: The Nameless One. I was on a roll. Nice to meet you.

  2. By far the most exotic locale I’ve ever visited is Vietnam, along the DMZ in 1967-68. What a paradise! Actually, there were stunning locales there, especially in the mountainous region in the west. 🙂
    –Michael

    • Hi Michael. Ah, Vietnam 1967 or so. My first husband and my second (we’ve been married now 40 years) both went to the Vietnam war; as did one of my early boyfriends. They all said the country was beautiful; the war, not so much.
      The most exotic place I’ve ever been is Mackinac Island where they only allow horses, bikes and snowmobiles in the winter. I’ve never been out of the country but sure would like to visit England and Ireland someday.

      • Being originally from Michigan I have been to Mackinac Island and it is a unique and wonderful place. I went with my son and we road bicycles all the way around it. Easily done in a day, even at a very leisurely pace, stopping here and there for photo ops. Ya never know what tomorrow brings. Wishing you good things.

        • Yes, my husband and I also rode around Mackinac Island on bikes when we were there. It was so much fun. We love the island and its quirky people….and the seagulls and horses. We hope to visit the island one more time and maybe even (it’s so expensive) stay a night at the Grand Hotel.

  3. We rode horses too. Loved it. We got separated from the rest, but the horses led us back to the barn. Sometimes it’s worth it to splurge and pamper yourself. I think you’ve earned a stay at the Grand Hotel. 🙂

    • Sherry
      you’re right…I have earned a night at the Grand Hotel! I tell my husband we can stay there a night and then I’d write another ghost story set in the Grand Hotel itself and write off all the trip’s expenses as writing expenses, ha, ha. Did you go to the Grand Hotel when you were there? We went to the daily tourist buffet (yummy!) once and also high tea once; both were amazing. I felt like high society. When we go next time we will positively hire a carriage and ride it around. Oh, I loved the summer mansions on the island, too. So beautifully magnificent.

  4. Sounds like a great plan. I did not spend the night at the Grand, though we did visit it. I was also there with my mother. We didn’t explore the island as much, but had a great time in the town sampling the fare.

  5. The most exotic place I have visited is Dunk Island off the Queensland coast in Australia. My husband and I went there for our honeymoon just over 30 years ago (we celebrated our anniversary last week!).

  6. I’ve never been outside the United States, but I would love to go to Sicily. It looks so beautiful there and so relaxing! My sister and her family went with the high school chorus on a trip to Italy, and she got some great pictures!i would so love to go someday..

  7. I have always wanted to visit the mystical, magical, ancient sites like Stonehenge, Angkor Wat, Macchu Picchu, and more. Not sure if these fall under “exotic” or not, however they are truly places I would love to visit.

  8. I’m glad you really enjoyed this. Sounds like the author is very descriptive.

  9. Thanks for all your comments and congratulations to the winners. Remember, even if you didn’t win, Kathryn is offering all her books for review, so be sure and check them out!
