yet speak language let alone English Charla is a little flirt and while not as horrid as Evvie still rather bratty Davy seems better behaved and of a typical toddler The last scene made me laugh but it s preposterous hide spoiler I love historical fiction and I love series fiction Ms Peters or Mertz or Michaels has been an inspiration to me for over a arter centuryWhen I was a very young mother and had all the time in the world for reading and writing Ms Peters books stimulated my intellect and aroused my imagination I had no college and through Vicky Bliss and Amelia Peabody I was inspired to learn who John Donne and Howard Carter were to read Shakespeare and listen to Handel and to reach for independenceI visited through Ms Peters stories Rome and Munich Luxor and Cairo I went into tombs and through pig stys across dry deserts and frozen mountains I went to college in real time learned about the references in her books gained even inspiration and kept writing Ms Peters work continues to inspire meThe Amelia Peabody story is a fun and educational series that will appeal any woman who values independence andor motherhood Adventure mystery mother love and romance combine to make Brothers up fabulous entertainment I could never rate these books anything less than 5 stars Or ten if that was an option This installment adds the edition of The Children s Children and what a delight they are I especially have a fondness for little Charla who bites XDI constantly found myself tearingp and laughing out loud throughout the narrative Ms Pete.

Having read several in the series I love the exact of language and enjoy the family dynamics It has a slow leisurely pace which means although I want to the series I need to take a break and read something a little faster paced for a while Come the holidays the easy rythms will be the perfect way to destress One of the best ones I think The Great War is over and the whole family is back in Egypt but jewellery is missing and Abdullah tells Amelia the children are in danger what could possibly go wrongEnjoyed this very much I thought the mystery was excellent though I figured out the culprit early on blame it on reading so many mysteries and I loved following the whole family on their adventures Nefret and Ramses are always a highlight but this felt very much like an ensemble novel with everyone having their one little story This also has ite a few interesting scenes about Egyptian nationalism and ownership of a country s treasures which I believe are still relevant today This is really a series you have to read in order every book spoils whatever came before and most of the twists come from family connections you never suspected Always great fun In my opinion Barbara Mertz who wrote the Amelia Peabody series as Elizabeth Peters was an author few could hope to emulate Her writing style incredible vocabulary gift of creating clear pictures impeccable knowledge of Egypt detailed research comedic timing and love of the written word made every one of her books an escape for met yet speak

Rs really knew how to throw #A GUT PUNCH AND THEN MAKE #gut punch and then make glad you took it lol I love this gang of heroes and miscreants like they re my own family I ve been putting off finishing this series for a good decade because clearly I have issues with saying goodbye But I think I ll finally move on to the next one because as Amelia always says we will not say goodbye but bient t A splendid fifteenth in this series Much skilful recapping woven into the start for new readers and then both an exciting adventure and a substantial and welcome amount of character history and development and resolution And of course the Children of the New World usual humour and the wry fun poked at the pomposity of our hero and heroineThe GR blurb The fifteenth adventure for Amelia Emerson and the whole Peabody Emerson clan At last the Great War is over Amelia her distinguished Egyptologist husband Emerson and their extended family are preparing for another season of excavation in Egypt To everyone s great joy their son Ramses and his wife Nefret have become parents Amelia enjoying her role of fond yet firm grandmother hopes that for once this will be aiet year with Ramses no longer The Oswald Reflection undertaking perilous missions for British intelligence and no old enemies on their trail Amelia is sadly mistaken Past dangers cast shadows across the seemingly peaceful present and a new adversarynlike any Amelia has ever encountered will chart a course that puts her beloved family directly in the path of destruction Every time I read an Emilia Peabody book it s like visiting family The The Rabbit Who Wants to Go to Harvard uirkiness of the characters makes them all so absolutely loveable and the story is always exciting Emilia and Emerson are still passionate for each other even as they explore grandparenthood and Emilia s attitude toward the children is absolutely in keeping with her characterno ridiculous grandmothery sugar herenless you count cakes at tea to keep the little ones occupied It was particularly fun reading this exact book at the same time as watching Downton Abbey as they take place during the same time period It added something to my enjoyment of the book to know a little about the historical setting and manners of the time even as the Emersons are in Egypt I let too much time go between the last two of the series I won t make that mistake again August 2019 I miss Elizabeth Peters awfullyJune 2017 This re read 5 stars because the family reunion is so terrific despite the fact that it takes Quantum (Captain Chase up of the book than the thin mystery Plus Barbara Rosenblat is incomparable The really bad thing is that I am getting so close to the end of this wonderful series which has really turned into a family saga I am definitely going to suffer withdrawal symptoms when I finishChildren of the Storm is made special by the fact that the entire family is gathered in one place including a whole gang of grandchildren and even Sethos Remembering how in the early books Ramses was so garrulous it was funny to see him concerned that his three year old twins babble in their own language but do not speak properly This made the final paragraph of the book particularly preciousAssual people keep turning Introduction to Mythology up dead and there is a mystery for Amelia to solve Emerson fails to get much archaeology done but there are many fun family moments such as when he teaches the children to ride donkeys or when he attempts to show them the process of mummificationsing a broken doll Things get very exciting towards the end of the book and for once it is not Amelia who reuires rescuing The ending is perfect and I am going to savor it for a while before reading the next book.
