This novel started 3,300 years ago in Egypt and continues to World War II Germany, juxtaposing two love stories, an ancient and a modern one. The romance evolves through the lives of two families in ancient Egypt. One is King Akhenaten, the almighty Pharaoh, and his wife Nefertiti and their descendants; the second is Ror, a lower-class family whose son Tuthmosis became a talented sculptor. Nefertiti was the most beautiful woman in the world, and a competition was introduced to all artists of Egypt to make the most impressive sculpture of the queen. Tuthmosis created her immortal, beautiful bust, and Nefertiti fell in love with the genius sculptor. The sculpture was then discovered in 1912 by Borchardt, a German archeologist with the Berlin Museum. The young, talented Dr. Klopshtock was appointed to head the Museum team whose task was to investigate and gather every possible piece of information on the admired queen; as he was so dedicated to his work, he gradually fell in love with the image of the beautiful woman. When the war started the Dr. Klopshtock was separated from his family and was shifted as a slave from one concentration camp to another, the last being the salt mine at Merkers-Kieselbach in Thuringia. Secretly, the bust of Nefertiti was brought from Berlin to this mine, where finally the American army rediscovered it.
