Jaya Singh is the intelligent, beautiful, and compassionate daughter of the Maharajah and Maharani of Balmer. Raised in the thousand-year-old tradition of purdah, a strict regime of seclusion, silence, and submission, Jaya is ill-prepared to assume the role of Regent Maharani of Sirpur upon the death of her decadent, Westernized husband. But Jaya bravely fulfills her duty and soon finds herself thrust into the center of a roiling political battle in which the future of the kingdom is at stake . . . and her own future as well.

About the Author:

Gita Mehta is the author of numerous bestselling books, including Karma Cola, Raj: A Novel, A River Sutra and Snakes and Ladders.

From AudioFile:

The span of history from Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee to India's independence is reenacted through the life of Jaya Singh, daughter of the Maharajah of Balmer. This beautiful woman's life is the medium through which the author retells the anguish of the Indian people during the domination of the British government. As Mehta has dramatized the history by putting it into fictional format, so Nadia May colors the novel with her amazing Indian dialects. Recalling the novel, one still hears the varied voices and the energy behind each. She leaves pictures in the listener's mind. J.P. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award Winner.
