Excellent reading! I found the subject matter and plot very interesting, the quality of writing , superb. Once I started reading, it was hard to put the book down! The fact that it is a historical novel makes it an even more worthwhile read.. I was fascinated with the plot, the characters, the historical period and locale, as well.. ,


Captivating, romantic and a ride for the senses

i really enjoyed this book. the trip to India was fantastic with the smells and textures and colors that Sundaresan places into her novel. I so enjoyed the strong lead character and the intricate details of court life of the time. it has peaked my interest in Indian cooking again and interest in learning more about the culture and history. what a fantastic book.
