Who was Pharaoh Hatshepsut and how did she rise to such prominence, so much so that a magnificent funeral monument was erected in her honor? Why was it that such a concerted attempt was made to erase all memory of Hatshepsut from the annals of ancient history? How did it come to be that so many inscriptions, depictions, and statues of this captivating figure were so deliberately defaced? Is it possible that she could have been the teenaged daughter of Pharaoh who plucked Moses from the Nile, then raised him as her own? What impact did Hatshepsut have as Moses grew to manhood, married a beautiful black woman, then was forced to flee into exile after learning of his Hebrew roots?
Faithfully weaving the biblical account with little known historical and archaeological details, the author of Abraham and Sarah explores the enduring enigma of Moses and Hatshepsut, rescuing this fascinating woman from the bulrushes of anonymity.
