Jeska by Lady Dre
Stories from the Plantation Book WA 1
A personal message from the author:
This particular story was 40 years in the making – first time being told. It has grown as I have, and it can not be told in one book. I don't know many authors who can say they have been waiting forty years or more to tell a story they've held on to since childhood.
— Lady Dre
There is a storm coming to Egypt, and one woman has the power to dictate where it goes and who it breaks.
Jeska was a girl who just wanted to learn how to be a healer and make her family proud. An encounter with royalty doesn't change that, but it certainly complicates things. She is swept away into the glittering world of the royals, it is a beautiful world that hides the betrayal she will soon receive with a pretty facade. She fell in love quickly with Hotep, a kind boy who saw past the glitter of the court and tried to help her do the same.
But the facade, as all facades do, soon fell apart.
Jeska is a woman who has lost everything, her love, her husband and two of her children, she is bent but not broken and she has her mind fixed on revenge. When an old friend asks her to dive straight into the war, she doesn't hesitate, and this time, she is not alone, Hotep, now a great warrior will be working with her. Together, they will uncover secrets, fight battles, and rekindle a love they thought was long gone, still, will her actions be enough to stop destruction from raining down on Egypt?
