Join Firangia in this journey of romance and adventure, devotion, crime and deception, set in the year 1819, through villages, jungles and small towns. This is pre-railways India, when merchants traveled in caravans, noblemen with escorts, and no road was secure.
On his way home after a trade expedition, Firangia’s path is crossed by beautiful Chanda Bai, traveling with a small party of guards. Though a warrior, she wishes to travel under his protection. Should he decline?
Read about grandiose ambitions pitted against petty schemes, love and deceit, and what in our modern times is termed evil. You will find in this intellectually ambitious, meticulously researched, action-packed historical fiction a broader, age-independent significance.
