What do you see- # 37 -A roundup

~*~

Hands held in supplication, she watched

There was mutiny in her heart but her demeanor said otherwise

I just want to be free like this hummingbird she thinks

I need to make them believe that I have surrendered my will

Just one chance needed to break free of my captors

  1. You reminded me of a book I read years ago where a princes was captured and added to a harem. She was able to ‘settle’ into her life without abuse – and get a message to the man who she was supposed to wed, but alas she never did escape the island.

      1. I only started keeping a book journal in 2009 – so I read it before then…. I think I found it:
        THE SULTAN’S HAREM, Colin Falconer, Author

        Although my own recollection might be confusing it with another book. This one had this as part of the synopsis: …Bestselling author Colin Falconer offers an irresistible glimpse into a world of intrigue, sensuality, and violence, where an empire can be controlled not by the might of its king but by the women hidden behind the Harem walls.

        And in another review: For nearly four decades (1522–1559), Hürrem conspires mercilessly against her enemies, employing lies, blackmail and poison. One of her victims is Julia, a captive Venetian girl, whose own unlikely story (she once loved the man who is now the eunuch in charge of the harem) plays out in counterpoint to Hürrem’s. So it is possible that this is the book – or I could be way off. 😀
