I was given an advanced copy of this book. I could not put the book down. Read it in one go. I must say that Anuja has a done a wonderful job again in the historical genre. A well researched historical romance. The author has spoken about the the queen in such way that in a brief span she was married to the Rajput king, she was loved by the people of the kingdom for her courage, her financial planning ability to chart out a plan to help the downtroddens. She rises above the pettiness and jealousiness of the other women of the king's harem.
There is a lot of take away from the life of this queen for the women of today's generation. Her courage, quick mind, planning ability, empathy are the few things that inspired me when read this book. I personally believe that it must not only her beauty but also her brains that must have attracted Alludin Khiliji.
Though she died young, her beauty and chastity has been immortalised. Thanks Anuja for this lovely book
