Cleopatra The Story of the Beautiful Egyptian Queen by Valerie Wilding

Cleopatra is an iconic figure and one of the most powerful women in history.

This fictional retelling of her life is a dramatic and thrilling story. Lives in Action is a series of narrative biographies that recount the lives of some of the key figures in history. Page-turning, thrilling plots that read like fiction will keep the most reluctant reader hooked.
