    It's kinda of a romance book, but it's also about a girl with a heart condition.

    Princess. Do yourself a favor and read the "Egyptian Series" by Wilbur Smith starting with "The River God".

    Promise you won't be disappointed and will keep you busy until Christmas. Warning..you will get hooked.

    Princess, each book is about 500 pages. After you finish these there are about 30 more separated in about four different "themes". Heck of a journey I promise you.

    People often ask in which order they should read my novels. I'd suggest in the order in which they were written, given in the table below, even if that is not in chronological order – the later Courtney novels are set in a time before the earlier ones I wrote.

    Love Wilbur Smith. Have learned so much about the African continent and its history and almost every book has been a romp. Did not care for the one contemporary story he wrote about the oil heiress.
