Summary :

M.M. Kaye's breathtaking new masterpiece returns us once again to the vast, intoxictaing romance of India under the British Raj, a fabled land of moonlit palace gardens, filled with whisperings of passion and intrigue. It is the story of Winter, a beautiful English heiress come home to her beloved India, and of Captain Alex Randall, her protector, aching with need to possess her. Forged in the fires of a war that threatens to topple an empire, it is the story of a desperate, consuming, unforgettable love. There are only a few novels so haunting they echo through our dreams long after the last page is read. Such a novel is Shadow of the Moon, a story that will never end, as long as the heart remembers.

  • "M.M. Kaye is a top-notch storyteller. She holds the reader in thrall." The New Yorker
  • "A prestigious work of history, aglitter with all the essentials of high gothic romance. GONE WITH THE WIND is almost reduced to the category of primer... One comes away form this novel informed and dazzled by the veritable agony of suspense, by detail, by the palpable sense of place in some fine storytelling." Los Angeles Times
  • "Ranks with the classics... A story of love and hate, blood and dust, jungle and tempest with all the evocative overtones of a finely tuned pen." San Diego Union
  • "I was utterly enthralled. Not only does M.M. Kaye know how to tell an exceedingly good story, but she tells it smoothly and well, building her suspense and fleshing out her many characters." Atlanta Journal Constitution
  • "M.M. Kaye is the queen of the romantic historical novel... Mrs. Kaye's ability to create and sustain suspense is uncanny and once you fall under the SHADOW OF THE MOON I defy you to stop reading... The result is an absolute joy." Cleveland Plain Dealer
  • "Another splendid tale of India... A strongly appealing combination of romance and high adventure with exceptional historical authenticity." The Wall Street Journal
  • "This is storytelling as it should be... There is a certain joy in the lilt of fine writing over and beyond the subject matter. The precise word selected to convey the exact nuance of emotion or atmosphere. Kaye possesses that selectivity." Houston Chronicle
