The first half of the book is set in England; the second part in Egypt. Although no date is specified I gather from certain details that the time period is around the 1880s.

Several reviewers have stated that they prefer the Egyptian setting best, yet the events set in England engaged me the most. The first half was much like a typical novel written during the Victorian era, which shows how authentic this 1973 publication is. I like the no-nonsense heroine’s way of dealing with a most disagreeable lady who’s taken her on as a companion.

The Egyptian section had potential to be much better than it was. Can’t say much without giving things away, but will state that I thought the ending was rather lame.

The dialogue and the characterisation were good, the plot was fine yet it could have been spiced up. Thus not the most startling or gripping narrative I’ve ever read, but at least it was neither badly written nor boring. ( )

The book opens with the deaths of Sir Edward Travers and Sir Ralph Bodrean. Sir Edward was an archaeologist and died in Egypt while on a site. Sir Ralph had helped fund the expedition. Rumors a circulating that it's the curse of the Kings. The beginning of the book is about Judith growing up with the children in both homes. She was interested in archaeology and while growing up they had lessons about it and she continued her interest by reading books on the subject. Eventually you get to the present where there is an unexpected inheritance, a marriage and another expedition to find whatever Sir Edward had been looking for. Of course the book is full of drama and worry. I loved it! ( )
