by Pamela Sargent
This is historical fiction at its best; I could LIVE in this book.
To call this a novel of Genghis Khan is almost misleading, since it is really the story of his mother and many of his wives. Through their eyes, we get a glimpse into why history has been so fascinated with this man, but this is more than just a re-telling of the Genghis legend. It is a very well-researched look into the motivations of women to stay with and perhaps even love such a person.
For me, it was also a great piece of research, showing exactly how the women would have lived and the politics that would have played out on the Mongolian plains. Of course, it's fiction, but it felt more than that.
Fans of Genghis will probably not love him in this, since he comes across as misogynistic and cruel in many places, but to me, this made it all the more interesting.
