Book description

"December 1, 1627
My father has four wives, but I am the daughter of the one he loves most, Arjumand Banu Begum. I, too, am a Begum, a princess. My name is Jahanara, great-granddaughter of Akbar, the greatest Moghul ruler if India... I have diamonds the size of beetles, and I have thirty servants and eight elephants trained especially for me. I have everything except freedom. We are all of us imprisoned: my mother, my father, my younger brothers, and my younger sister. In tents hung with gold cloth, we drink from emerald-studded chalices and yet we are prisoners.
