    Description

    This book tells us the story of Zeenat and the night that changed her life. The story also gives us a preview of the Mughal culture and their way of life.

    Summary of the Book

    On that fateful night, Zeenat was pushed into the Mughal emperor's harem so she could satisfy his lust. The story tells us a lot about Jahangir’s laziness and Shah Jahan’s rebellion. Zeenat’s life had changed forever that night. She goes from the harem of Jahangir to Shah Jahan’s golden age of architecture. She even visits Jahanara's boudoir. Her life is a dizzy string of events with both sad and happy moments. She is trapped in her fate of being a woman in a time when they only did what they were told. The Mughal history is filled with soft moments of romance and times of passion and aggression. This book spans across the era between 1610 and 1650.

    A peek into Mughal Royal Life

    I was not sure what to expect when I started on this novel. Will it be more like an erotic story, adventure or a boring historical treatise on harems? The title promises all and I have to agree with that but with some critique!

    The story in the novel is spread over the reigns Jahangir and Shahjahan of the mighty Mughal Dynasty. The protagonist as per the title is the fictional character Zeenat, who is forced into the Harem of Jahangir and eventually escapes from there. Though Zeenat's life i...

    Just wow!

    A very beautiful novel written in a simple pattern for depicting extraordinary incidents and characters. People who really love history and have a vivid imagination would love this book. The neat way in which the story has been portrayed easily makes one sit on the time machine. I have always been particularly interested in the Mughal era of splendor and richness. This book does justice to my imagination. A must read. Looking forward to more such novels from the writer.

    very nice book

    although not many people like to read historical romance, this one is worth reading. I have read books by Philippa Gregory and like them very much. I found Escape from Harem equally interesting.
    Mostly it is the curiosity about an unknown era that made me buy the book but reading through it was a revelation. Hope the author will keep writing such books for readers like me.

    fabulous and fantastic novel

    "Escape from harem" is amazing. I always wanted to know about the details of harem and have always been mystified by this word "harem". I just gasped out while reading the extravagant lifestyles of royal mughals. The ambience of harem juxtaposed with the rebellion of shah jahan and world-known love of shah jahan and mumtaz makes the book spectacular. plus,it also polishes up your english language a lot.

    nice book

    it is a nice book. Story is interesting, allows readers to peep through another side of lives of Mughal emperors. in my opinion, this book emphasized more on writers command on English language than the story. this book is bombarted with not so common vocabulary. in short this is not a book with easy English.
