Meryt-Re should consider herself lucky: her aunt and uncle take good care of her, a boy in the village wants to marry her, and the village itself is favored by the kings because it is home to the builders of the great Egyptian tombs. But as a teenage girl in Ancient Egypt, Meryt struggles with an uncle who wants to get rid of her, a village in turmoil over its leadership, and people not being quite as honest as they seem. Suspected of witchery and assumed to be ungrateful, Meryt must find her own way to happiness as she uncovers mysteries the rest of the village is too preoccupied to acknowledge.
