    Beautiful and richly engaging book that weaves history and a love story together in such a uniquely stunning book. I read all her books and wish we could access her final book in the trilogy. The narrator is made for this book and is completely melodic in her tone.

    For anyone who likes historical fiction, this is an engaging story of the Mughal Empire that focuses on a woman who is truly unique for her time and the emperor whom she captivates. The narrator has a fabulous Indian accent that drew me immediately into the story. The portrayal of Indian culture and the descriptions of the inner workings of the harem and the zenana are very rich. If you like the books about Henry VIII and his wives, you will love this one as well!
