This is a book I personally enjoyed. This is about a 14-year-old princess in India named Jahanara. Her father was overthrown by his evil stepmother, and are now captives. Her brothers Dara and Aurgenzeb were taken hostage.
     But soon, Jahanara's step-grandmother is overthrown, and her father is back on. Her relationship with her wonderful, beautiful mother grows stronger, and she is indulged by the fact that she is the oldest daughter of the emperor. Her brother's are returned. Dara is ecstatic, but ten-year-old Aurgenzeb has turned very solemn, and has dedicated his life to religon. Their relationship strains.
    War comes. Jahanara listens to the gossip about battles, and people executed. It frightens her, and stops recording in her diary for a while. But she starts back up again, with news that her mother is pregnant once again!
     But as Ami (her mother) is in labor, her health fades. Jahanara doesn't care for a new baby anymore. She just prays Ami will live. But her prayers aren't answered. After giving birth to a girl, with her daughter and husband at her side, she takes her last breath, and her whole family plunges into a deep mourning.
    Jahanara misses her mother dreadfully, but she believes that it taught her that Ami will always be in her heart.
     This book is very moving , and made me realize how much my own mom means to me. In the beginning, it's a bit fuzzy, but if you read on, it turns into a novel of life and love.
