March 28, 2019, Thursday evening -- Reading Indu Sundaresan

In the Mission District
She is reading The Twentieth Wife, by Indu Sundaresan. It's the first book of a historical fiction trilogy. She was originally drawn to the book for its cover and now has read the whole trilogy and is reading this book for the second time. It's about the last wife of an Emperor in India who had a lot of influence and set policy and shaped the course of history.

She reads a lot of fantasy, and especially liked Phillip Pullman's trilogy His Dark Materials. She also really liked Lilac Girls, by Martha Hall Kelly, a historical fiction novel which is set in World War II and is about the lives of three women.
