(From the publisher):
The intelligent, beautiful, and compassionate daughter of the Maharajah and Maharani of Balmer, Jaya is raised in the thousand-year-old tradition of purdah, a strict regime of seclusion, silence, and submission. But with the premature death of her decadent, Westernized husband, Jaya must assume the role of regent Maharani of Sirpur. She soon finds herself thrust into the center of a roiling political battle in which the future of the kingdom is at stake. It is a conflict that will force Jaya to realize her own future as a leader of the Indian people in her own right.
