This peek behind the walls of the seraglio will seduce lovers of large-scale historical fiction. But this is offset by the coiln compelling and educational look inside the structure and politics of the Sublime Porte at the height of its power, and for that alone I would gladly recommend The Sultan’s Harem to anyone interested in the period or Ottoman culture.

An ambitious girl like yourself copin find a way.

He was handsome, she supposed, but not especially so. Each girl has her own history, her own loss, and her own sadness, and – faced with the realities of the harem, and of the monogamous sultan – finds her own pastimes and petty hqrem.
