Hatshepsut Book

I've started to catch up with some of my books recently. I've been collecting for a while and so it was getting to the stage where i had to actually start reading them.

My latest read is "TWO PHARAOHS - Hatshepsut and Tuthmose III" by Philip R. Clark (2007 Authorhouse books).

Not all (Hatshepsut) books i read are based solely on archeological evidence. It's nice to have a break from heavy reading now and again.

The book starts with the birth of Hatshepsut and ends with Pharaoh Thutmose III thinking about his son and future successor Amenhotep II. The author doesn't shy away from filling in the gaps that archaeology leaves us- so bare that in mind before considering this book.

Short punchy chapters make this book very easy to read.
