Welcome to Wishful Wednesday!
This week I wish for a historical novel:
House of Dreams by Pauline Gedge
Book info (from Amazon.com): House of Dreams is the story of an indomitable, ambitious young woman and her rise from village midwife to royal concubine, the beloved of mighty Pharaoh.
As she moves from initiate to insider, she stirs the passions and the jealousies of those around her. And as her power grows, so does her ambition. But whose ambition is she serving? For always behind the comforts and power of privilege, there is the inescapable, ambiguous influence of Hui, the mysterious benefactor who first noticed her.
