The Last Pharaoh

ISBN: 9781386134923

 

He’s the pharaoh you’ll love to hate! The Last Pharaoh, a novel by Sof member Dr. Lorna Holmes, originally written for middle grade students, is finding an audience with adult readers as well. In Seattle in 1980, Billie gets a package containing Nectanebo, the last pharaoh of Egypt, who is out to rule the world again. To defeat him, Billie needs the help of a cat from Theria, a parallel world she finds at the top of a tree. In Theria, animals live for thousands of years, and share their wisdom with select humans. Now it’s up to her to figure out how to save her mother’s life, and save the rest of the world, from the evil plans of Nectanebo. Tomb raiding, a nuclear submarine, ancient magic, and the eruption of Mount St. Helens are all part of the action.

We’ll both be celebrating the beauty of summer and waiting for the sun to finally go down so that we can welcome Shabbat. In the Jewish year we’re taking a moment to breathe in […]
  • Does God Need Our Prayers?
    In a word, yes — but not in the way most people think. Originally posted on My Jewish Learning Does God need our prayers? In a word, yes. God does need our prayers, but not in the way people sometimes think. It’s not that there is a vain, insecure God up in heaven who loves to hear praise and exaltation. […]
