About Wisdom’s Daughter:

Ayesha the white sorceress has been known by many names: ‘She-who-must-be-obeyed’, ‘Isis Come To Earth’ and ‘Wisdom’s Daughter’. Here she tells her tale of power, wisdom, love and deception in her own words. Arabian by birth, Ayesha’s natural beauty was the cause of many wars and conflicts in her father’s kingdom between princes and suitors, leading to rumours she was cursed. Seeking to protect herself she swears an oath of celibacy to serve Isis the Goddess of the Spirit of Nature, and turn away from Aphrodite the Goddess of Love. However, when Greek soldier of fortune, Kallikrates, comes to her for sanctuary, her resolve weakens. Kallikrates does not arrive alone – he is pursued by the Pharaoh’s daughter who is widely envious of Ayesha’s beauty and vows to destroy her.
