Synopsis: Journey to dazzling seventeenth-century Hindustan, where the reigning emperor, consumed with grief over the tragic death of his beloved wife, commissions the building of the Taj Mahal as a testament to the marvel of their love. Princess Jahanara, their courageous daughter, recounts their mesmerizing tale, while sharing her own parallel tale of forbidden love with the celebrated architect of the Taj Mahal. This impressive novel sweeps readers away to a historical Hindustan brimming with action and intrigue in an era when, alongside the brutalities of war and oppression, architecture and the art of love and passion reached a pinnacle of perfection.

About the Author: John Shors has spent much of his life abroad. After graduating in 1991 from Colorado College, where he studied creative writing and received an English degree, Shors pursued his dream of living in Asia: first in Kyoto, Japan, where he taught English for three years; and then backpacking across the continent. Over the next few years he visited ten countries, climbed the Himalayas of Nepal, and explored the monuments of India. Throughout the Indian subcontinent he acquainted himself intimately with customs and cultures that, at least on the surface, are contrary to Western modes of thought.

After returning to America, John Shors became a newspaper reporter in his home state of Iowa. Within two years he had won a statewide journalism award for investigative reporting. He then moved to Boulder, Colorado, where he began a career as a public relations executive, working for clients ranging from Fortune 500 corporations to local nonprofits.

Shors currently lives outside Boulder with his wife and two young children. Beneath a Marble Sky is his first novel.
