When I read Cleopatra's Daughter, I picked it up solely because I didn't even know Cleopatra HAD a daughter who lived through the siege of Egypt, and I was interested in historical fiction. I closed the book 2 days after picking it up, fully satisfied and craving more. Michelle Moran has taken the words of history and beautified them into emotions, and actions. Even though I am new to historical fiction, I can only imagine the amount of research and work she had to have put into this book. For one thing, if you youtube Kleopatra Selene, you come up with 1 relevant video. Ms. Moran must've really looked into the past, and brought it forward for this amazing book about the struggles of being taken away from your country and forced to live under a totally different rule and culture.
