Back cover: Gondar 1846 I kept my gaze on the ground when the chiefs walked by me, but I do not think I imagined it that many of them studied me as they passed-as carefully as any village father looking for a bride for his son. I wanted to shrink away from their gazes that were like lizard's tongues...
When twelve-year-old Saba and her older brother are kidnapped and taken from their rural home to the royal palace at Gondar, Saba finally learns about her long-lost parents-and her own royal past. With Ethiopia's rulers in the midst of a fierce struggle for control of the throne, what can the King of King's-Emperor Yohannes III-possibly want with her?
She was never told anything about her past and lived in a remote village. She and her brother are kidnapped and the tale unravels. This book was wonderful-I enjoyed it. Then again I like children's books!
