beneath a marble sky
so this is what i have been reading. finished up last night. great book. a love story, but one of those almost braveheart style except a woman is the main character! it does have some descriptive violence and rape though. its an important part of the story.

Let the splendor of diamond, pearl, and ruby vanish. Only let this one tear drop, this Taj Mahal, glisten spotlessly bright on the cheek of time, forever and ever.
