THE LAST QUEEN A Novel of Courage and Resistance

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Sneha Mathan

Fiction • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

No one else could have narrated this novel as skillfully and masterfully as Sneha Mathan. Her Indian accent and vocal dexterity infuse all the characters with distinct personalities. This is the story of the last queen of the Sikh empire, Rani Jindan, who rose from humble origins to become the favorite wife of Maharaja Ranjit Singh during the mid-1800s. When the Maharaja dies, Jindan is left to fend for herself and her 6-year-old son. Survival is challenging in a royal court full of treachery and the threat of a British invasion. Jindan matures from a naïve young woman to a warrior queen in a fascinating metamorphosis. Mathan does a superb job of captivating listeners from the beginning of this historical fiction to the end.
