1855. Lucknow, India.

As tensions simmer in the heat of repressive colonial India, an English woman and a prince of Avadh defy their own and their societies’ prejudices and fall in love. But in a world where private happiness is at the mercy of wider events, even as Salim and Rachael are drawn closer together, their privileged lives in northern India are about to be torn apart.

Trouble begins when the British annex Avadh and banish the rightful king. Salim is determined to recover what is rightfully his and when a small sepoy mutiny flares into bloody rebellion against British rule, he seizes the chance to fight back. Soon unrest spreads across the subcontinent and the contested ancient city of Lucknow proves one of the most dangerous places to be.Torn between their loyalties to each other, their families and the opposing sides that threaten to raze Lucknow to the ground – can Salim and Rachael’s love survive?

Amid a city and society consumed in hatred and devastation, Salim and Rachael are torn between their loyalty to each other, their families, and the opposing sides that threaten to raze Lucknow to the ground. Will their love prove strong enough to rise above the chaos and survive to a world beyond?

A moving and poignant romance set against the exotic backdrop of what was once one of the richest and most beautiful cities in the world – destroyed by a mutiny and then forgotten.
