Product Description

Political reverberations were felt throughout the Raj and – as the kingdoms were about to disappear forever in the maelstrom of Indian Independence – as high as the British throne. How did it all come about?

Travelling through Melbourne, London, Mumbai Palanpur, Mt. Abu, and the South of France, research in the India Office Library in London, and the author’s personal journey while travelling in modern India, Joan’s cousin and writer Suzanne Falkiner traces the course of a most unusual love story and the life of a charming and determined young woman..

Suzanne Falkiner is the author of several fiction and non-fiction titles such as Rain in the Distance (1986) and Lizard Island: The Journey of Mary Watson (2001). She lives in Sydney.
