Along the Nile weaves pre-dynastic Egyptian history with action, romance, and mysticism.
Told by Heb, Pharoah’s servant, the many facets of Ancient Egypt come to life. Heb’s story is an adventure story set alongside the mighty River Nile, and a love story of passion, loss, and spiritual regeneration.
The author’s three prolonged stays in Egypt resulted in a life-changing, transformative experience which led her to further investigation, knowledge, and a personal relationship with the goddesses Hathor and Sekhmet. The narrative reflects her intimate exploration of Egypt’s archaeological sites and her study of and participation in Egyptian religious rites and traditions.
“Lauren Thyme is obviously a person who knows her ancient Egypt profoundly. Her writing gives an almost hallucinatory impression of being there. Along the Nile is far and away the best novel about Ancient Egypt I have ever read.” —Colin Wilson, author of The Outsider, From Atlantis to the Sphinx, The Occult, and many more.
