Beneath a Marble Sky, A Love Story

Built to mourn the tragic death of the emperor's wife, the Taj Mahal is at the center of this murderous, fantastical and dazzling tale, told from the point of view of daughter Princess Jaharana. Parallel to the emperor's grief is the forbidden love between the princess and a Taj Mahal architect. Shors elegantly conjures royal life in 18th-century Hindustan.

Author: John Shors

NHA Staff Recommendation:
"I picked up this book as it was a local author for me. I loved the way he created he wove a story of love in with the planning and building of the Taj Mahal. The night before I was to visit the Taj Mahal I stayed up into the wee hours to finish the book and was happy I did as the book increased my appreciation of this amazing architectural feat." - Suzanna Spencer
