Review

Jane Johnson writes the sort of books you want to tell everyone about - they hook you from the first page and sweep you along with passion, history and romance. I'm addicted (Katie Fforde )

An utterly compelling story (Stuart Macbride, Author Of Cold Granite )

An irresistible page turner - I loved it (Barbara Erskine )

Imagine the darkest Arabian Tale combined with Tremain's glorious Restoration. A truly alluring read (Essie Fox, Author Of The Somnambulist )

Far more than a rip-roaring read: it's a true work of art. Deftly recreating the court intrigue of the tyrannical Moroccan Sultan Moulay Ismail - with all its trappings of superstition, black magic and torture - it sucks you down through interleaving layers steeped in blood, sweat and raw adrenalin, to a mesmerising bedrock of real history... The Sultan's Wife gets inside you, conjuring its magic long after you read the last line (Tahir Shah, Author Of The Caliph's House )

Full of intrigue, deceit, skulduggery and murder. It has romance in it, but also heartbreak and personal tragedy. It's deeply evocative of North Africa - the sights, the smells, the culture, but there are also great depictions of London at the time, and the court of Charles II. I really enjoyed it (Ben Kane, Bestselling Author Of Spartacus: The Gladiator )

From the Back Cover

'Imagine the darkest Arabian Tale combined with Tremain's glorious Restoration. A truly alluring read' Essie Fox, author of The Somnambulist

1677, Morocco. In the Palace of Meknes, captive chieftain's son, Nus Nus is framed for murder. Attempting to uncover the truth, he is caught between three powerful courtly figures: the tyrannical Sultan Moulay Ismail,; his murderous wife Zidana; and the conniving Grand Vizier.

Meanwhile, a young English prisoner named Alys Swann is brought to court . She faces a choice: join the Sultan's harem, or die. But as they both struggle to survive, Alys and Nus Nus make an unlikely alliance - one which will grow closer as they seek to escape a near-certain death . . .

From northern Africa to the streets of Restoration London, The Sultan's Wife brings to life some of the most remarkable characters of history in a captivating tale of intrigue, loyalty and desire.

'Full of intrigue, deceit, skullduggery, murder, romance . . . but also heartbreak and tragedy' Ben Kane, author of Spartacus: The Gladiator

'Terrific' Daisy Goodwin, author of My Last Duchess
