Beschreibung

The Palace of Illusions takes us back to a time that is half-history, half-myth, and wholly magical; narrated by Panchaali, the wife of the five Pandava brothers, we are -- finally -- given a woman's take on the timeless tale that is the Mahabharata Tracing Panchaali's life -- from fiery birth and lonely childhood, where her beloved brother is her only true companion; through her complicated friendship with the enigmatic Krishna; to marriage, motherhood and Panchaali's secret attraction to the mysterious man who is her husbands' most dangerous enemy -- The Palace of Illusions is a deeply human novel about a woman born into a man's world -- a world of warriors, gods and the ever manipulating hands of fate. Praise for Queen of Dreams: 'A riveting story, eloquently written. Divakaruni's attention to detail in descriptive passages is beautifully telling' Boston Globe 'Magic, intuition and folklore drawn from India, combined with a darker, contemporary tale that will resonate with anyone who has struggled with modern love, mores and parenthood' USA Today
