Synopsis of book»


In her sparkling sapphire necklace and matching blue hair ribbons, Princess Mili cannot wait to explore life beyond the palace walls with her best-friend and soul-mate Vicky. Naïve and mischievous, the girls set off for one of the best schools in all of India, pulling pranks and never taking life too seriously.

When a horrifying assault against Vicky leaves Mili alone and shaken, she is plunged into reality. Riots and racial attacks constantly spill out onto the streets of the village-town Kishangarh. Hostility towards the 1940s Indian government is intense.

Sangeeta Bhargava’s dazzling prose brilliantly captures both the chaos of the years leading up to India’s independence from colonial rule in 1947 and the sumptuous vibrancy of a country rich in culture. After the Storm, a vivid and moving story, follows the coming-of-age of an Indian princess whose humbling journey changes her naive outlook on life.

As the country finds its voice and footing in an India free from colonial rule, what place is there for Prof. Raven, the English man who comes to see Mili as more than his student?

'Wonderful tale about two forlorn lovers in the colonial rule and how their lives change with the developments in the independence struggle of India... Nostalgia, the heart-break of losing friends.. despair, fear, tough unavoidable decisions and life altering moments... Overall, a wonderful read. Highly recommended for historical fiction lovers. And for mushy-romance lovers.'Jigar Doshi, India
