The Sultan's wife betrayed him with a lover, and so the Sultan killed the two of them. Unwilling to be alone, but believing that all women are betrayers, the Sultan marries a new girl each day and kills her before morning. No young woman in his kingdom is safe. Then Shahrazad, the daughter of the Sultan's own vizier, volunteers to be his wife. In the morning, facing death, she asks the Sultan if she can tell her younger sister one last story before she dies. The Sultan agrees, and listens as Shahrazad tells her story to Dunyazad. But as Shahrazad sees the sun rising, she breaks off her story at a particularly exciting spot, promising to finish it the next night if she still lives. The Sultan, entertained and intrigued, grants Shahrazad her life for one more day. And so begins a tense and uncertain pattern - each night Shahrazad tells a story, but there is always the danger that if it does not please the Sultan, death awaits. After two and a half years, Shahrazad is running out of stories. When a young girl named Marjan visits the harem, she has something Shahrazad needs - more stories. As the Sultan's own mother plots against her, can Shahrazad, with Marjan's help, heal the Sultan's crippled heart and bring him peace and forgiveness? A particularly gripping novel of hurt and the power of forgiveness.
Based on The Tales of the Arabian Nights.
