The Lady of the Lions is a short story that takes place about 150 years before the start of the full length novel In a Milk and Honeyed Land. The setting of Kephrath itself in the Canaanite hill country will be familiar from the novel, but of course none of the characters overlap. The story explores the background to two letters written to the Egyptian pharaoh about a threat to the region. It has been published by Matteh Publications and is now available in kindle format from Amazon.
