Subject: "The story of the young and gifted among the Workmen of God Ptah of Memphis who came into their inheritance too young. Egyptians thought it normal to enter in due course into their parents' professions. But through the tragic circumstances of a failed rebellion against the Macedonian-Greek conquerors, the youngest generation--artists, doctors, and rulers alike--found themselves catapulted from youth to the world of adult responsibility. Esa and her surgeon husband had to try to maintain their integrity while assimilating into the new Greek world. Their friend Taion, Great Commander of the Workmen of God, had to try to be something other than a youthful figurehead, all the while struggling between a mistaken adolescent marriage and his love for the exquisite Laodike, who is the "female of his own species."
