This is the story of a woman attempting to command her own destiny in a man's world. It is also story of two cities at the height of their powers - the hedonistic Mughal capital, ruled by Akbar the Great, and the equally sensual city of Florence during the High Renaissance, where Niccolò Machiavelli takes a starring role as he learns about the true brutality of power (from the book).
