The Harem Midwife




A rollicking, fast-paced historical novel set against the lavish richness of sixteenth-century Constantinople.

In the opulent palace of the feared and revered Murat III, Hannah Levi, midwife to the Sultan’s vast harem, is forced to ensure heirs for the kingdom. If she fails, the entire Ottoman Empire will collapse, but the woman who is chosen to be the Sultan’s mistress is not all she seems.

And when a mysterious woman turns up on her doorstep, claiming to be her late brother’s bride, Hannah must find the courage and wit to defend herself – both against the threat of the palace and the widow-imposter – or lose everything she has ever loved...
