About this book

The Double Crown | Historical & Mythological Fiction

Marié Heese

Human & Rousseau

Commonwealth Writers Prize: Africa Region Awards (2010)

This gripping novel is the fascinating and true story of Hatshepsut, the female pharaoh who ruled over Egypt for two decades around 1500 BC.

A vibrant and poignant portrayal of an ambitious and courageous woman and the betrayals she faces, both as a woman and a ruler.

Dan Lazar, Heese’s US agent, rightly calls her “a literary stylist with commercial chops”.

Also read The Colour of Power.
