Book List : Arib - Queen of the Silk Road

| |
I loved it. Historical novel about woman's strength and independence in a world where men rule everything. About the art to love and hate.

"With rich and evocative imagery, Agnes Imhof tells the true story of the woman who conquered the hearts of the most powerful caliphs with the arts of music and seduction. She transports the reader to a sensuous world replete with luxury and debauchery intrigue and hatred."

Though for my personal taste "Dina's Book" (by Herbjørg Wassmo) still remains best. What's your favorite?

Sadly, this book is not yet translated to English but if you are from Spain, Lithuania, Czech Republic, Croatia, Poland, Serbia - I recommend it for everyone's library.
