From the Back Cover
You Don't Know Her Name. The World Remembers Only Her Greatest Friend: Cleopatra.
Raised together in the Alexandrian palace, Chava, the Hebrew daughter of the royal tutor, and Urbi, an Egyptian princess, become as close as sisters--and rivals with their dreams of greatness. When Urbi unexpectedly ascends the throne as Queen Cleopatra, Chava believes their bond is strong enough to survive. But absolute power has a way of changing everything.
The ultimate betrayal rips Chava from everything she's ever known and sends her to the lowest rung of Roman society where she must choose between love and honor, between her own desires and God's will for her life, if she hopes to rise again.

"Once again, Hunt demonstrates her stunning mastery of historical biblical literature as she begins her new Silent Years series. . . . Hunt crafts a deeply layered portrait of Cleopatra and the precarious political territory the queen had to tread. This fresh approach brings a faith-based perspective to the tension and complexity of the Intertestamental Period. Rich in history, atmosphere, emotion, and spirituality, Hunt's ambitious series debut is astounding."--Booklist starred review

This is a clean book as far as sexual topics are concerned and Hunt does mention how people were killed without going into any of the details.
for our good. I enjoyed this novel so much and I can't wait to read Hunt's next novel.
