She is a fantasy novel written by H. Rider Haggard in first published in 1887. It has enjoyed great popularity since its release and is considered by many critics to be the best fantasy novel of the 19th century.

Horace Holly is a university professor who receives a visit from a colleague named Vincey, who reveals terrible news to him: his colleague will die shortly. Also, he tells him a legend about the history of his family.

Vincey entrusts Holly to take care of and raise his little son and leaves him a box as a legacy that he will only be able to open when the boy turns 25...

Once the boy reaches this age, he opens the box and finds an ancient text that seems to confirm a family legend that Vincey told Holly some time ago. The young man and Holly decide to travel, following the instructions of the fragment, to East Africa but they are shipwrecked during the journey...

She is the beginning of a tetralogy around the main character of Ayesha, a white queen who governs a village of natives and who calls herself "She" or "She who must be obeyed."

"There are some events of which each circumstance and surrounding detail seems to be graven on the memory in such fashion that we cannot forget it, and so it is with the scene that I am about to describe. It rises as clearly before my mind at this moment as though it had happened but yesterday".
