The Woman Who Would Be King. Hatshepsut's Rise To Power In Ancient Egypt by Kara Cooney

Kara Cooney is at her best when she describes Egyptian society and the rich and strange rituals if Egyptian life. I found her account of the powerful and ambitious Hatshepsut interesting, but the book was very 'text-bookish'.

There was a lot of speculation in this biography, so it was full of words like 'might' and 'probably'. I thought that this made it difficult to read and annoying, unfortunately.
