Item description for OSMIS, the Cursed Egyptian Maiden by McCann Chuck...
Most of us have dreamed of living beyond our allotted time, albeit, under conditions we control and with knowledge already acquired. Nice thought, dream on. How does the story of Osmis, the typical child of the Nile delta born before Alexander the Great, become the property of Tony an American soldier? Why is he sent back to the States while the war is raging in 1945? Here he brings Osmis' story to life, but why are the translation hidden away, even destroyed years later? Can we believe her story is true? The sudden accidental death of Osmis's closest friend causes her to accompany her father, tax collector for the Pharaoh, on a trip on the Nile. When he is killed, her pleasant journey becomes a nightmare. Sold into slavery, she must learn a new life style and adjust, but events occur that cause a high priest to condemn her to a very long life. Forced to flee into a frightening world, where being a girl isn't safe, Osmis becomes, at times, Daniel or Danielle for her own well being. Befriended by a herbalist, she is soon earning her way by doctoring locals with herbal concoctions, but even this must change. As Daniel she can travel as a soldier with safety, meeting Julius Caesar, who in turn opens the way for trips to England, Jerusalem and Pompeii. This is just one of the astonishing people she'll meet on her trek through her cursed lifetime. Year after year she encounters the events and people that changed history. We must judge for ourselves what role she had in history, if any? Did Tony and his friends interpret the amazing happenings Osmis wrote about correctly? Why don't you decide?
