Giants’ footsteps are lost sometimes;
A ripple made by an eyelash on sand may endure for eons
Only future holds what remains on the sands of Time ....
Rubaisha is a fantasy teen story, of unexpressed love. It is light read, which brings out love in different form. The interesting fact is, the story revolves around love and passion, and however, it is not a love story. It is a story of passion, ambition, story of survival. Rubaisha is for light fiction readers, who would like to complete a book in one afternoon.
The story unfolds in two time period. One story line is based in present time, and another is in ancient Egypt. The story begins when two friends Angella and Andrew are planning to go to Egypt to spend their holidays. Angella’s father is a historian who is trying to prove that women in ancient Egypt (long before the time of Cleopatra) rose to the highest power.
He wanted to discover the historic remains of a queen Rubaisha who was ever present in folklore but not a shred of historic proof was found. Rubaisha seemed to be deliberately erased from history.
When Angella and Andrew reach Egypt they are greeted with a murder. When they try to find out the truth behind the murder, unexplained things begin to happen.
Rubaisha’s passion kept her alive even after her death. Time and destiny of these three individuals get entwined. As story unfolds, we see murder, curses and tale of untold love.
The story travels to past, where we witness life in ancient Egypt. We see the political power play. We see cover up and double crossing as power shifts from one person to another.
