      The Mapmaker's Daughter, a historical novel set in the 16th century, is the confession of Nurbanu, born Cecilia Baffo Veniero - the mesmerizing, illegitimate Venetian who became the most powerful woman in the Ottoman Empire at the height of its power under Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent—the bold backstory of the Netflix Series, Magnificent Century.   Mostly, however, he feels like a world builder because his work sets up a book. “A map comes before the text in most books, and a good map can help set up, in the mind of the reader, what they might expect before they read a word.

    In America, we have so many beautiful and amazing places. Places that have meaning to all of us as citizens — Washington, D.C., Lexington & Concord, Selma, Alabama; places that are geographically stunning — the Grand Canyon, the Smoky Mountains, the Okefenokee Swamp; and places that have personal meaning to us as individuals and smaller communities — towns our ancestors emigrated . Book Overview "Mapmaker expertly brings the paranoid thriller into the age of surveillance, and the result is both moving and chilling." --D.B. Weiss, co-creator, writer, and producer of Game of Thrones When Tanya Barrett takes an internship at MapOut, she expects emotional landmines.
