The Feast of Roses - A Novel on Nur Jahan
Description
Back of the Book

In this lush and romantic sequel to the twentieth wife, Mehrunnisa, the first woman Jahangir marries for love, is now empress Nur Jahan. As a mark of his devotion he transfers his powers of sovereignty to her. But she has a for midable rival in the imp0rial harem, Empress Jagat Gosini, who has plotted against her from the moment she entered the emperor's life. Beyond the harem walls, she battles powerful ministers who won't allow a mere woman to have a say in the outside world.

Defying all established norms of womanhood in seventeenth –century India, Mehrunnisa combats her rivals by forming a junta of sorts with the three men she can rely on: her father, her brother and jahangir's son, Prince khurram. She demonstrates great strength of character and cunning to get what she wants, sometimes at great personal cost, even almost losing her daughter's love. But she never loses the love of the man who bestows this po9wer upon her: Emperor Jahangir.

I wanted to let you know that the books arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Many, many thanks for the very rapid response. My husband had purchased many years ago a Kâshî Sanskrit Series edition of Nâgesha’s work that lacked the second volume. Delighted to have found the entire work — and in the original edition.
Cheryl, Portland.
I received a sterling silver cuff and ring. Both are more beautiful than I imagined. They came in a beautiful box; I will treasure them. The items here are made by artists.. and the shipping was faster than I expected.
