Back in England after the Great War, Archie Douglas meets a young lady whose beauty takes his breath away. But Cicily Broadbent, student of Egyptology, has sworn never to marry. She believes that Nekhbet the White Vulture, virgin mother goddess of ancient Egypt, can grant women children without man’s touch. Determined to win her hand, Archie awaits the day when she grows out of this experiment with paganism. But when Cicily succeeds in re-awakening the goddess, Archie has more to worry about than just losing Cicily.

For a short book and a quick read, Long packs in an entertaining and exciting story. There's some mystery, some light romance, some Egyptology and hieroglyphics. The focus on Egyptian myths and language is done in such a way that it doesn't bog down the story or become pedantic. The milieu of the story feels right, set after World War I and the attitudes and thinking that would've prevailed then. Because the story is told entirely from Archie's point of view, his character is the only one we get to know somewhat well. Thus the other characters are fairly superficial. But in a story as short as this one, that doesn't necessarily distract from the read.
