Cleopatra's Daughter

I just recently finished Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran. Loved and highly recommend it if---- you like ancient Rome... I have always loved ancient Rome and the cultural past it entails.. Without telling the story, it is basically about Cleopatra and Marc Antony's (both who committed suicide) children.. Alexander and Selene were twins and were the only survivors when Octavian took over Greece! The story is about these twins who survived all odds and what happens to them once they move to Rome.. It is historical fiction, meaning most of the facts are true, but the story of the twins is fictional.. Warning: it is sort of depressing at parts, but so so worth it!! It has been so hard for me to find a good book here lately, but if your into these types of books, it is must read!

P.S. Thanks to Johna, who always helps me decide what to read next! Love you pumpkin
