March 1, 2011 No Comments

Based on a true story of the experiences of Lady Duff Gordon’s maid in Egypt in the mid 1800’s.  A very powerful and fascinating read.  It will make you want to read Lady Duff Gordon’s own book “Letters from Egypt” about the last years of her life seperated from her family in order to seek relief from the debilitating effects of her tuberculosis.
