Not bad....

Cleopatra's Daughter - Michelle Moran

This is the story of Kleopatra's daughter,  a figure often overshadowed by her mother in history.  The story was good.  I was surprised that it ended where it did.  I expected the story to span more years than it covered. It read very factual,  which I did not like.  I did not get attached to the characters as I wanted to.  Still,  this was an enjoyable read.
