enjoyed this book much as I enjoy cozy mysteries The arrangement marriage plot, with the Greek heroine being married to a Greek Egyptian general under pharaoh, is developed well as the relationship grows through respect and friendship, culminating in love A suspense subplot, where the heroine is in peril from anti Greek factions, is well plotted there are some religious aspects in the plot, but they are subtle and do not detract from the suspense or romance This is a G rated book, suitable for both one s mother and teen daughter Overall, I found this a quite enjoyable book Ismene has to leave the people she loves behind, because she s being forced to move from Greece to Egypt Her father has arranged a favorable marriage for her Ismene s heart already belongs to someone else, her childhood sweetheart and best friend She doesn t have a choice though She travels to Egypt where she will stay at her future husband s house Alistair is a general and works for the Pharaoh They re close friends and Ismene is being treated like royalty.Unfortunately not everyone like Ismene has to leave the people she loves behind, because she s being forced to move from Greece to Egypt Her father has arranged a favorable marriage for her Ismene s heart already belongs to someone else, her childhood sweetheart and best friend She doesn t have a choice though She travels to Egypt where she will stay at her future husband s house Alistair is a general and works for the Pharaoh They re close friends and Ismene is being treated like royalty.Unfortunately not everyone likes having Greeks in Egypt Ismene s marriage is taking place in an unstable time Alistair is often away on army business, but when he s home he isn t as bad as she initially thought He treats her well and Ismene has access to every luxury she can think of Will she ever fall in love with her husband And what will happen when the mob and other rebels are after them at the same time Will Alistair be able to stop them before they can do something really terrible Ismene has to move from Greece to Egypt The only loyal company she has is her servant She had to leave everyone else behind Marrying for love isn t what her father has planned for her and she has no choice but to travel to Egypt and make the best of her arranged marriage I admired her strength and flexibility Ismene is beautiful on the outside and the inside She s also headstrong and she doesn t trust easily She s an intriguing main character with a praiseworthy personality.Alistair is a proud man with a kind heart He does everything he can to make Ismene s life as comfortable as possible When he s hurt he can lash out, but most of the time he s friendly and caring I liked him and Ismene together from the start They have great chemistry and I loved the suggestive way Sara R Turnquist writes about that without ever becoming too literal She does that in a clever and fun manner The interaction between Alistair and Ismene is interesting and I couldn t wait to find out if they were going to be happy with their arranged marriage or not.Sara R Turnquist begins with a brief history of Greece and Egypt in the time she s set her story It s a clever way to make it easier for the reader to picture the setting and the society she s writing about It s handy to have some background information, especially for the continuity of the story, I didn t have to stop reading to look things up Sara R Turnquist shows that true love is something of all times, which is an important message I m a big fan of books about that topic and definitely enjoyed this one.The General s Wife has several unexpected twists and turns and I could see the creativity of the author in every scene The result is a surprising story I enjoyed reading about Ismene s life very much When she arrives in Egypt there s unrest The emotional turmoil inside her is causing a lot of stress, but she deals with it as well as she can It was fascinating to see her reactions together with the feelings of her husband about the same situations I loved the multiple layers of the story and think The General s Wife is a wonderful, original and romantic book I enjoy history,
