Praise For A Place in the Sun

"The details of daily life, customs, and beliefs of the people are wonderfully revealed through the words and deeds of the characters.. . . . A substantial glossary helps to identify and explain unfamiliar terms. A fine story for enjoyment or as curriculum support for units on ancient Egypt." School Library Journal
