While I did find the peek into harem life interesting, I cannot recommend this book. It had a great beginning, slow middle, and a disappointing end. There were too many unanswered questions to make this a satisfying read.

Engaging story about a runaway Scottish lass who is kidnapped by Barbary pirates and sold into the harem of the Moroccan emperor.

A bit raunchy, but overall a good story. Very loosley based on a true story. It has a strong beging and the kind of ebbs in the middle, but picks back up. I found the charicters to be both likable and appaling at the same time. The Fourth Queen allows you to look inside the harrem, a world that is very different from ours. This book has love, tretchary, and a little mystery.
