MAILBOX MONDAY/IT'S MONDAY! WHAT ARE YOU READING?



I have been away from the blog for a long time. Seems like months. So many domestic issues got in the way that I thought I'd never get back.

Just one book came into my house and its a winner. The Mountain of Light by Indu Sunderasan sent by the author herself. Am I a lucky duck?


The Mountain of Light


A period of history that I love. The British in India - the Kohinoor diamond, the mystery and history behind those who possessed it. Rich in detail, descriptive to the utmost - you can feel the magic of this Moghul period, the sadness of its fall, the rapaciousness of the British. Indu Sunderasen at her best.





Hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Reading the above, almost done with it and loving the book.

Mystica, I'm glad you're enjoying this book. The history of the Moghul dynasty is rich in so many ways that its reading can be an enriching experience.
