Cleopatra’s Moon by Vicky Alvear Shecter

Cleopatra Selene is the only daughter of famed Queen Cleopatra of Egypt and General Marc Anthony of Rome.  Schecter takes the reader through Cleopatra’s young life from a time of riches and servants to losing everyone and everything she loves.  Can Cleopatra regain her rightful place as Queen of Egypt?  Will she be forced to choose between love and duty?  Ancient Egypt and Rome comes alive as the story weaves historical fiction and teen emotion beautifully in this coming of age saga that empowers women and enlightens all who read it.
