Beneath a Marble Sky Part Four

By John Shors

Part Four

  • Jahanara's granddaughters still don't really understand how she could have left and returned to Agra.
  • Jahanara admits that it was out of a sense of duty and pride, but also so that she could prove to herself that she deserved her father's adoration.
  • Jahanara prepares to continue with her story with one heck of a teaser: she says that when they got back to Agra, she imprisoned herself and set Nizam free.
