Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw

Mara—Daughter of the Nile

By Eloise Jarvis McGraw
Level 8

First published in 1953 by talented writer Eloise Jarvis McGraw, Mara brings ancient Egypt alive in a story of secrecy and danger. I love the descriptive writing, the elevated vocabulary, the historical details, and the engaging characters. There is no objectionable language or material. However, a bit of appropriate romance may make the book more appropriate for a little older audience.
