  • Description
    'The narrative alternates between seductive languor and racy action which capture the opulence and drama of the Mughal kings. Sundaresan delightfully combines history and juicy gossip' - India Today Mehrunnisa - the Sun of Women - one of India's most legendary and controversial empresses ... a woman who overcame insurmountable obstacles through sheer brilliance and determination ... whose love shaped the course of the Mughal Empire. She is the twentieth wife. The daughter of refugees from Persia, growing up on the fringes of Emperor Akbar's opulent palace grounds, Mehrunnisa first encounters Prince Salim on his wedding day. Eight years old at the time, she decides that she too will one day become Salim's wife - unaware of the great price she and her family will pay for this dream. Skilfully blending the textures of history with the rich imaginings of a fairy tale, The Twentieth Wife sweeps readers up in the emotional pageant of Salim and Mehrunnisa's embattled love. From an ill-fated first marriage through motherhood and into a dangerous maze of power struggles and political machinations, Mehrunnisa searches for the true redemptive love she has never known. Mehrunnisa's and Salim's quest takes them, and the vast empire that hangs in the balance, to places they have never dreamed possible.

    While I was reading this book, I felt as if I was actually there in the Mughal era, watching everything happen in front of my eyes. So well-written. You can't leave this book in the middle once you pick it up.

    Amazing Book!!!

    This is a wonderful book! I was immersed in the grandeur of the Great Mughal empire and most importantly in the engaging story of Mehrunissa and Salim( Jahangir).
