The Sultan's WifePaperback - 2012
Page-turning mystery, grandly seductive romance, and full historical immersion into Moroccan court history, this exquisitely depicted and intensely absorbing novel follows in the tradition of "The Tenth Gift" and "The Salt Road." 1677, Morocco. Behind the magnificent walls and towering arches of the Palace of Meknes, captive chieftain's son and now a lowly scribe, Nus Nus, is framed for murder. Meanwhile, a young Englishwoman named Alys Swann has been taken prisoner by Barbary corsairs and brought to the court. She faces a simple choice: renounce her faith and join the Sultan's harem or die. Alys and Nus Nus find themselves thrust into an unlikely alliance - an alliance that will become a deep and moving relationship.
