    A beautiful, haunting story, centuries old, but facinating!

    When I read this for the first time, I couldn't put it down. The story of Mehrunnisa is set in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, but seems like it is happening today. Her heartaches are so like ours today, different contex, but achingly familiar! Why isn't history told in stories like this? The next book, "Feast of Roses", continues her story and includes the Taj Mahal and it's creation. I have given this book to several people and keep mine to read again and again!

    Read this more than 3 times in the past year.

    This book is based on Mehrunnisa (better known as Nur Jahan in Indian history), the first Indian woman who rules behind the veil in the Mughal empire. Its her story from birth to the time she weds emperor Jahangir.
