Eliza is no stranger to India or to heartache, having witnessed the death of her father at an early age in Dehli before moving to England. She returns to India newly widowed and armed with a steely determination to establish herself as a talented and respected photojournalist. Along the way, she encounters prejudice, unusual customs and of course, romance when she meets Prince Jay, the younger, somewhat nomadic, brother of the ruling prince.
There are many twists and turns to the plot and the culture, customs and landscape of India at that time are seamlessly interwoven, creating truly atmospheric scenes and evoking a real sense of time and place. An historical novel bursting with colour and a fabulous read!
