    An enchanting historical epic of grand passion and adventure, this debut novel tells the captivating story of one of India's most controversial empresses, a woman whose brilliance and determination trumped myriad obstacles and whose love shaped the course of the Mughal Empire.

    Story

    First the good news: this is beautifully written - and the narration is outstanding. The bad news - the story isn't very interesting. Although the title character seems quite interesting, the book gets lost because of its focus on historical accuracy and its dogged effort to to lay out the history of the story rather than writing an interesting story. For example, of the first 8 hours that I listened to - much of it was about Prince Salim and his exploits. There were long stretches when the story had nothing to do with the title character. If you are looking for a history primer on this corner of the world at this time in history, you might like it.
