Lady Kiah, Princess Royal of the ruling family of Kush, is contracted to marry the heir of the most powerful family in the eastern Roman Empire. Intelligent, compassionate, and deadly with a knife, Lady Kiah must prepare herself for her husband-to-be by acclimating herself to the culture and customs of her new land.
But when she arrives on the shores of ancient Syria, the misadventures begin for the young, headstrong princess as she explores her new land and is tested to the limits by her cousin, Zenobia, and her aunt, Aziza.
An epic adventure of love, power and the journey to womanhood, Daughter of Two Nations begins the tale of one woman's fateful role in the events that unfold during the fall of Palmyra, one of the most powerful city-states in the Roman Empire.
