Recommendation: 'Cleopatra confesses' by Carolyn Meyer

Cleopatra confesses by Carolyn Meyer
At the age of 10, Cleopatra knows she would make a good queen of Egypt – better than her vain and jealous older sisters. In an atmosphere of distrust, power struggles, and natural disasters, Cleopatra most negotiate, appease, and apply all her learning and instincts to survive. Even when she becomes queen, her rule is not secure and she must charm and entice the most powerful in the world – Julius Caesar – to secure her throne.

Told from the perspective of Cleopatra, this is an intriguing piece of historical fiction about one of the most fascinating, enigmatic, and powerful women in history.

A classic novel about another Egyptian queen is Mara, daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw. Why not check it out, too?
