Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nadia May

Fiction • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1989

The span of history from Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee to India's independence is reenacted through the life of Jaya Singh, daughter of the Maharajah of Balmer. This beautiful woman's life is the medium through which the author retells the anguish of the Indian people during the domination of the British government. As Mehta has dramatized the history by putting it into fictional format, so Nadia May colors the novel with her amazing Indian dialects. Recalling the novel, one still hears the varied voices and the energy behind each. She leaves pictures in the listener's mind. J.P.
