The Mapmaker's Daughter by Katherine Nouri Hughes

“[An] absorbing historical novel… compellingly interlaces public history and intimate conjecture.” The New Yorker

“Of all the appetites the lust for power is the strongest—and most dangerous. This is a lively, absorbing and utterly convincing self-portrait of a woman who came under the influence of the greatest of all Ottoman sultans—with tragic consequences.” ― Edmund White, author of Inside a Pearl: My Years in Paris

“A heartbreaking read that marries a strong story arc with a dedication to historical details.” Booklist (*starred review)

The Mapmaker's Daughter is an immersive, beautifully-woven narrative that dissects the paradoxes of female power and the particularities of the 16th century Ottoman Empire.” ― Dr. Amanda Foreman, author of Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire and A World on Fire: Britain's Crucial Role in the American Civil War.
