Aimée Dubuc de Rivery, reared in a convent, a concubine at fourteen. She rose to hold sway over the cruel and terrifying Turkey of the 1800’s.
A novel of tenderness and cruelty, innocence and barbarism. Set in an era which worshipped the art of love and exalted the demands of passion. Aimée’s days are crowded with affairs of state. Her nights with the kind of love which only a few women of destiny can ever know.
Out of stock
Margaret Lathrop Law could hardly have chose a more enthralling historical-figure on which to base her novel of a young innocent French girl captured and abducted by Algerian pirates and forced to learn the secrets of the harem, who eventually share the throne of the great Sultan Mahmud 11.
