based on other reviews I used my credit to purchase. The narrator was excellent. The storyline was slow and long for me and the historical romance I expected wasn't captivating or very interesting.
Wonderfully written historical love story and superb narration. I am going to listen to it again and purchase the squeal. I normally do not like love stories, but this one was truly unique.
The author conjures up the Mughal Empire with skill and feeling, a period story woven through an individual narrative, the best way to enjoy history. The narrator is outstanding -- a factor that can't be underrated.
I really enjoyed this audio. It was a well told and well read story with well developed characters, story line and great description. Highly recommended.
Overall, this was an enjoyable listen--but perhaps a bit long for the content. (Of course, there's also a sequel now!)
