Transporting readers to the menacing yet majestic world of eighteenth-century Turkey, biographer and Middle East expert Janet Wallach brilliantly re-imagines the life of Aimee Dubucq, cousin of Empress Josephine, in her first novelSeraglio. At the age of thirteen, when en route from France to her home in Martinique, Aimee Dubucq is kidnapped by Algerian pirates. Blonde and blue-eyed, the genteel young girl is a valuable commodity, and she is soon placed in service in the Seraglio - the Ottoman Sultan’s private world - in Topkapi Palace. As Dubucq, renamed Nakshidil ("embroidered on the heart") discovers the erotic secrets that win favor of kings and deftly learns the affairs of the empire, she struggles to retain her former identity, including her Catholic faith. Overtime Nakshidil becomes the intimate of several powerful sultans: wife to one, lover and confidante to another, and adoptive mother to a third. Her life often treads the tenuous line between sumptuous pleasures and mere survival until her final years when she is awarded control of the harem as the valide, mother of the Sultan. With phenomenal research and a mesmerizing voice, Janet Wallach provides a powerful and passionate glimpse of East-West history through one woman’s distinctly European eyes.… (mere)

This is a fictional tale based on the life of Aimee du Buc de Rivery, cousin to Josephine Bonaparte. Aimee was kidnapped by pirates at a young age and became a slave in the sultan's harem, where she was known as Nakshidil. Like the other inhabitants of the harem, Nakshidil spends most of her time engaged in intrigues, hoping to gain the sultan's favor, and to outwit her rival Aysha's schemes. While interesting, Seraglio fails to be engrossing and I felt the characters were not well developed or believable. I would suggest this book to anyone interested in historical fiction about the Ottoman Empire or life in the harem, but I cannot highly recommend it. ( )
