9780140053166: Shadow of the Moon

M. M. Kaye, author of The Far Pavilions, sweeps her readers back to the vast, glittering, sunbaked continent of India. Shadow of the Moon is the story of Winter de Ballesteros, a beautiful English heiress who has come to India to be married. It is also the tale of Captain Alex Randall, her escort and protector, who knows that Winter's husband to be has become a debauched wreck of a man. When India bursts into flaming hatreds and bitter bloodshed during the dark days of the Mutiny, Alex and Winter are thrown unwillingly together in the brutal and urgent struggle for survival.

About the Author:

M. M. Kaye (1908-2004) was born and grew up in Simla, India. Her grandfather, father, brother and husband all served the Raj. M. M. Kaye won worldwide fame for The Far Pavilions, which became a best-seller on publication in 1978. She also wrote a series of detective novels, including Death in Kashmir and Death in Zanzibar, and an autobiography, published in three volumes, collectively entitled Share of Summer: The Sun in the Morning, Golden Afternoon, and Enchanted Evening.

From AudioFile:

Listening to Kate Reading read this complex, colorful saga about the British Raj is like hearing your governess describe those days of glory and folly while you are safe in your Victorian nursery. Reading reads crisply; her very proper English is easy to understand and pleasing to the ear. She speaks with authority and easily differentiates Eastern characters from Western and males from females. The exciting story features a setting of posh villas, moonlit gardens and heat-drenched battlements, all beautifully described in Reading's cultured, evocative voice. While this is a long audiobook, it will keep lovers of Romance novels and adventure tales transfixed. D.L.G. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
