TThe Drowning Guard: A Novel of the Ottoman Empire by Linda Lafferty ~ this book was rich in detail and deeply engrossing making the reader feel that they were with Ivan on his travels in the palace of Esma Sultan. Her confessions and his change of heart were believable and made me carry on reading, but then end was rushed and it spoilt the story that the author had so carefully spooled. I really enjoyed the setting and loved the characters of Ivan and Irena.
