Book Description
Elizabeth Stavely sits in the Bodleian Library with trembling hands. Before her is a precious fragment of parchment which has about it a dusty fragrance of rose, of sadness and great age. Here is the clue she has ben looking for: the key to a story that has been untold for four hundred years. Constantiople, 1599: merchants from all over Europe are vying with each other to gain trading rights in the Ottoman Empire. Paul has been entrusted with the mission to deliver an extraordinary musical clock to the Sultan. But a disaster has befallen it on its ruinous effects of seawater on the precious artefact. Pindar is troubled too by a secret sadness: the woman he once loved is now lost to him, drowned in a shipwreck. But there have been rumours of a new young slave with golden hari, sighted behind the gates of the Sultan`s harem. Could this be his Celia?...
