The love story of Emperor Jahangir and Mehrunnisa continues in this lush sequel to The Twentieth Wife. As Jahangirs final wife and only love, Mehrunnisa soon becomes the most powerful woman in the Mughal Empire, ruling from behind the veil and demonstrating great cunning to get what she wants.
I read this book after reading the 20th wife, the 20th wife I enjoyed very much. Both these books are historical in nature, however, I preferred the 20th wife as there was more 'story' involved. This book Feast of Roses was more factual and doesn't have the large fictional aspect. I found I still enjoyed the book, but I would have prefered more characther and story development.
