An engrossing story of India under the hold of the East India Company and the devastating Sepoy uprising. The book had it all...history, romance, adventure, exotic location, war. A thoroughly enjoyable read!
Romance taking place in India - I read this a long time ago but still remember loving the imagery and romance of the novel.
I completely loved this book and I reccomend it to anyone.
M.M. Kayes' breathtaking new masterpiece returns us once again to the vast, intoxicating romance of India under the British Raj, a fabled land of moonlit palace gardens, filled with whisperings of passion and intrigue. It is the story of Winter, a beautiful English heiress come home to her beloved India, and of Captain Alex Randall, her protector, aching with need to possess her. Forged in the fires of a war that threatens to topple an empire, it is the story of a desperate, consuming, unforgettable love.
The very end of the book was AWSOME!!! I wished I could have gone straight to the end and read the reenactment of this British historical event. The rest of the book was ver dry and some loooong reading. I was disappointed in this book. Her book The Far Pavilions was my all time favorite book ever. This one let me down.
