Publisher's Summary

When it came to hunting, she was a master shot. As a dress designer, few could match. An ingenious architect, she innovated the use of marble in her parents' mausoleum on the banks of the Yamuna, which inspired her stepson's Taj Mahal. And she was both celebrated and reviled for her political acumen and diplomatic skill, which rivaled those of her female counterparts in Europe and beyond.

Fascinating tale told well

The book offers a unique perspective. And I must say I have not enjoyed an account of history like this before. The narrator too has done a god job. With her voice modulation, it kept me hooked to the story. Thank god the voice was not like those robotic voices.

Great book terrible narration

Excellent research- the author has done a brilliant job but the narrator hasn’t done justice
