Sex and friendship, ambition and political intrigue, secrets and betrayal will set the fate of two slaves—Jamila and Abimelech—in this ground-breaking debut novel. Inspired by the only existing first-person narrative of an Abyssinian slave in Iran, Jamila Habashi, In the Palace of Flowers recreates the opulent Persian royal court of the Qajars at the end of the nineteenth century.

This is a precarious time of growing public dissent, foreign interference from the Russians and British, and the problem of an aging ruler and his unsuitable heir. Torn away from their families, Jamila, a concubine, and Abimelech, a eunuch, now serve at the whims of the royal family, only too aware of their own insignificance in the eyes of their masters. Abimelech and Jamila’s quest to take control over their lives and find meaning leads to them navigating the dangerous politics of the royal court, and to the radicals that lie beyond its walls. Richly textured and elegantly written, at its heart In the Palace of Flowers is a novel about the fear of being forgotten.
