American Queen

This book delineates the true story of an American girl, Ora Ray Baker, who fell in love with an Indian mystic by the name of Hazrat Inayat Khan. They were married in London and settled in Paris. Their firstborn daughter Noor-un-Nissa, during WW11 became a British spy in Paris. She was captured by Gestapo and later killed in Concentration Camp in Germany. Their eldest son Vilayat Khan served in Royal British Navy, docked on the beaches of Normandy to deliver men, weapons and equipment to allied forces. He survived WW11 and now his son Pir Zia carries the Sufi legacy of his grandparents Ora Ray Baker and Hazrat Inayat Khan in Richmond Virginia, USA. Ora Ray Baker’s memories are still alive in Fazal Manzil in Suresnes, a suburb of Paris where she lived and died, her home, now a Sufi retreat. It also hosts memories of her husband and their children, especially of Noor-un-Nissa who was posthumously awarded highest medals, French Croix de Guerre presented by General Charles de Gaulle and British George Cross by King of England George V1. She is also enshrined in a movie, Spy Princess.
