Two Destinies...One Journey of Love

In a humble fishing village on the shores of the Nile lives Asenath, a fisherman's daughter who has everything she could want. Until her perfect world is shattered.

When a warring jungle tribe ransacks the village and kidnaps her, separating her from her parents, she is forced to live as a slave. And she begins a journey that will culminate in the meeting of a handsome and kind steward named Joseph.

Like her, Joseph was taken away from his home, and it is in him that Asenath comes to find solace...and love. But just as they are beginning to form a bond, Joseph is betrayed by his master's wife and thrown into prison.

Is Asenath doomed to a lifetime of losing everything and everyone she loves?


My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): loyalty
Lovely historical gentle romance. The story was of the biblical character Asenath, wife of Joseph. Yes, the Joseph of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.

I liked the peek into Egyptian royalty culture and its drama.
