Description - Wisdom's Daughter by H. Rider Haggard

Ayesha the white sorceress has been known by many names: 'She-who-must-be-obeyed', 'Isis Come To Earth' and 'Wisdom's Daughter'. Here she tells her tale of power, wisdom, love and deception in her own words. Arabian by birth, Ayesha's natural beauty was the cause of many wars and conflicts in her father's kingdom between princes and suitors, leading to rumours she was cursed. Seeking to protect herself she swears an oath of celibacy to serve Isis the Goddess of the Spirit of Nature, and turn away from Aphrodite the Goddess of Love. However, when Greek soldier of fortune, Kallikrates, comes to her for sanctuary, her resolve weakens. Kallikrates does not arrive alone - he is pursued by the Pharaoh's daughter who is widely envious of Ayesha's beauty and vows to destroy her. Only by staying true to Isis does Ayesha survive and as a reward Isis leads her to the hidden kingdom of Kor in Africa, to herald in a new Golden Age. The kingdom of Kor hides many secrets, including the The Flame of Eternal Life where ultimately Ayesha's vanity, obsession and desire lead to her downfall. The fourth and final book in the She sequence, Wisdom's Daughter is a fitting end to H. Rider Haggard's fantastical and memorable books featuring the beautiful immortal Ayesha and the is only volume telling her story in her own words.
