Beautiful and passionate piece of writing.
Nilofer and Jagat are placed in the story like as if twin souls that had their plans since the childhood. Just as we learn about them, the antagonists hurl in who later turn out to become villains. Nilofer is kidnapped and donated to Jahangir's Harem. She is just into her teens and had just started experiencing the emotion of love. And now, she had to become an employer at the Harem. She's devastated with the trauma of her father's death. Her only hope is Jagat's love.

Thank you so much
I do not wish to reveal much as that would mean adding spoilers to my review, however I can’t keep myself from mentioning that the couple of Zeenat; a woman from the harem and Salamat a castrated man was completely out of the box. I stopped feeling hungry after reading this book, I truly felt satiated inside out. The character and plot developments were apt. Unlike many other commercial love stories or historical fan fiction that I’ve read so far, the author refrained from dragging out another book for the story, but she didn’t. That made this a wholesome read overall. (Anyhow, I won’t mind a companion novel to this now; with a story line that continues with next generation of the original characters.) To conclude, I’d say that it was precise, interesting, indifferent and perfect.
It's one of those stories that pulls you into the characters' lives and leaves you wanting more, mulling over the scenes and premise for days after you've reluctantly turned the last page.
I have immensely enjoyed this wonderfully crafted story by Sujata Sabnis.
Songs of Stone is an engrossing love story of Nilofer and Jagat. Set in the era of Jahangir and Shahjahan, it unfolds itself layer by layer pretty nicely.
Nilofer and Jagat are planning to marry since the childhood. Until and Unless, there are people who will not let them be together. Nilofer is kidnapped and donated to Jahangir's Harem. She's just 15 and had to become an employer at the Harem. She's devastated with the trauma of her father's death. Her only hope is Jagat's love.
The emotional tortures and truth about the Harem life is revealed slowly and it is becoming difficult for Nilofer to stay away from the eyes of the king. Will Jagat be able to take her to the lands of happiness that he had promised her or this love story will die without making its presence felt?
Its characters and theme is marvelous. I got to see a historical fiction as good as this after a long time. The story feels as if happening in front of you and you go on supporting Nilofer and Jagat at every point. Their love, you can't forget.
The cover is apt for the story it contains. The chocolaty color of it takes you immediately to the Mughal era and the dagger and red blood, tells you what to except from this book that is : Awesomeness.
Writing style is something I would applaud for. It had a sense of grief for the misfortune of the character but more than that hope at every point.
If you're interested in reading History along with Romance and Betrayal, this is a perfect choice.
