The Merchant’s Pearl







“The Merchant’s Pearl,” by author, Amie O’brien, is a stunningly written historical romance about life in the waning days of the Ottoman Empire and the life of harem slaves. The main characters, Prince Emre and his concubine, Leila, one of many among his concubines and wives, begin to fall deeply in love amidst the turbulent times of change from the old-world-order to the new-world-order of the Industrial Revolution of Europe. The Merchant’s Pearl is an intriguing and intimate look at the Ottoman Empire’s daily life with all the opulence, beauty, and suffering as a way of life that existed for hundreds of years. The Merchant’s Pearl Saga has much more to say and I am eagerly looking forward to Aimie O’brien next novel. I highly recommend The Merchant’s Pearl.
