The world-renowned author of The Autobiography of Henry VIII and Mary Queen of Scotland and the Isles turns from Renaissance Britain to ancient Egypt and the story of Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile. Told in the first person - from the young queen's earliest memories of her father's tenuous rule to her own reign over one of the most glittering kingdoms in the world - this is a mesmerizing saga of ambition and power. But it is also a tale of passion that begins when the twenty-one-year-old Cleopatra, desperate to return from exile, seeks out the one man who can help her, the Roman general Julius Caesar - and does not end until, having survived the assassination of Caesar and the defeat of the second man she loves, Marc Antony, she plots her own death rather than allow herself to be paraded in triumph through the streets of Rome.

Fans of the author who loved her biographies of Henry VIII and Mary Queen of Scots will find this story of Egypt's ancient queen equally engrossing. The author's impeccable research brings a long ago civilization thoroughly to life, and her portraits of Cleopatra, Ceasar and Antony are wonderful. A spellbinding book." --Barbara Taylor Bradford "A thrilling story...[Cleopatra's] 'memoirs' are vivid and enthralling. Read them."" --Washington Post" "A 976 page time machine...It's as if you lived there, walked the streets and counseled the Queen throughout her turbulent life." "--Cincinatti Enquirer" "Awash in sensuous, jewl-like detail... As if ancient frescoes had sprung alive." --Entertainment Weekly "George is such a skilled writer the book seems built no the intimate details of the five senses" --"Memphis Commercial Appeal" "Readers looking to be transported to another place and time will find their magic carpet here." --"Publishers Weekly" "The best kind of historical novel, one the reader can't wait to get lost in." --"San Francisco Chronicle"
