THRILLING AND EXOTIC...,
This review is from: The Sultan's Wife (Paperback)
From the very first page I was enthralled by 'The Sultan's Wife'. This intelligent and original read offers the most intriguing plot that carries the reader on and on, only wishing for more when it finally ends. Having created some wonderfully memorable characters, Jane Johnson skilfully weaves a mesmerising 'Arabian tale', while her later London scenes hold echoes of Rose Tremain's 'Restoration'.
An exiting and beautifully written novel; a story of love, magic and incarceration - of the body and also of the mind.
