Summary
Although Jahan is the emperor of India and has many wives, Mumtaz is his soul mate-- a constant companion and wise political consultant. She dies giving birth to their 14th child, but had the foresight to begin preparing her favourite daughter, Jahanara, by instructing the girl in the arts of influence and political strategy. Jahanara picks up where her mother left off, advising the emperor and helping with construction of Mumtaz's mausoleum, the Taj Mahal, but needs all her skills when called to defend the throne against a coup by her evil brother. Descriptions of sex, explicit descriptions of violence, and some strong language. 2006
