An international bestseller and winner of the Georgette Heyer Historical Novel Prize.
A magnificent, twisting, turning love story unfolds amid the exotic splendour of the British Raj.
Englishwoman Laura Hewitt accompanies her newly engaged cousin to India, first to Calcutta and then to the fabled fiefdom of Oliver Erskine, Zemindar - or hereditary ruler - of a private kingdom with its own army.
But India is on the verge of the Mutiny, which will sweep them all up in its chaos.
