Title: Mistress of Nothing
Historical fiction. Lady Duff Gordon, known for her book "Letters from Egypt", and her lady's maid go to Egypt inasmuch as she has tuberculosis and warm dry weather is good for this malady. The trip down the Nile is delightful in description, living in Egypt is so engrossing as is the love affair her lady's maid has with the main man servant. The Irish lady's maid thought that her Lady loved her like a member of the family, but finds out that she is loved only like a pet dog. Nice way to learn a bit of history, mankind and deception, and a bit about love and passion!! 5 stars.
