The Holder of the World by Bharati Mukherjee

An amazing literary feat and a masterpiece of storytelling. Once again, Bharati Mukherjee prove she is one of our foremost writers, with the literary muscles to weave both the future and the past into a tale that is singularly intelligent and provocative. --AMY TAN This is the remarkable story of Hannah Easton, a unique woman born in the American colonies in 1670, a person undreamed of in Puritan society. Inquisitive, vital and awake to her own possibilities, Hannah travels to Mughal, India, with her husband, and English trader. There, she sets her own course, translating herself into the Salem Bibi, the white lover of a Hindu raja. It is also the story of Beigh Masters, born in New England in the mid-twentieth century, an asset hunter who stumbles on the scattered record of her distant relatives life while tracking a legendary diamond. As Beigh pieces together details of Hannahs journeys, she finds herself drawn into the most intimate and spellbinding fabric of that remote life, confirming her belief that with sufficient passion and intelligence, we can decontrsuct the barriers of time and geography....
