(From the publisher):
From the foothills of the Himalayas, through the palaces of the exotic East, this novel is a passionate and triumphant story that excites us, fills us with joy, moves us to tears, and helps us remember just what it is we want most from a novel. It is a mesmerizing story of hatred and bitter combat; of courage, and human sacrifice, of the star-crossed wedding of East and West. Above all it is a tale of love. The story of Ash, and Englishman, and Juli, a princess who must choose between the heritage of her people and the man she loves. It is a story that transcends time and place, a monumental epic we will never forget.
