Historical Fiction • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

In Burma in 1885, the British have forced the royal family from their Glass Palace, and the young and poor Rajkumar's life's journey is just beginning. He meets Dolly, nursemaid to the Second Princess, to whom he will return one day. Eloquently able to transition between British accents and Indian dialect, Simon Vance is as powerful a storyteller as Ghosh is a writer. As Rajkumar discovers the path to wealth, he also finds his way to Dolly in India and brings her back to her homeland as his wife. Their life together is happy, but as the world around them becomes more complicated, wars take place, progress brings its own demands, children and friends travel beyond India and Burma, and international turmoil is a constant companion. This is a rare depiction of history and an engaging listen. B.J.P. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
