Cléopâtre Lamaure, born on the first day of August, 1978 in a small town in Mauritius, was often compared to Cleopatra of Egypt, not only because of her name but because of their striking similarities in wit, courage, sweetness of voice, and above all, astounding beauty.
At thirty-one, it seemed that she bore more burdens than should have been expected at that age. In spite of the many hardships in her life, the atrocities that crushed her soul and caged her dreams, she gathered all her might to defeat all challenges, heroically.
What was it that kept her moving? Was it hope? Was it faith in herself or was it for someone else’s sake?
Learn all about this remarkable woman in the stunning novel Obstinacy: The Dauntless Chase.
