Excellent historical fiction, January 11, 2005This review is from: The Mountains of Allah (Hardcover)
If you like historical fiction with some romance, please read this. This book is excellent and one of my favorites. This book appears to be based on the lives of the author’s ancestors and the descriptions of the royal family life, the Caucasus, and the relationships between the Russian Christians and the Muslims of that area are well written and fascinating. To hear about the current problems in Chechnya reminds me that that area of the world has been in constant turmoil for centuries (including the Armenians). Please read this.
