Set in nineteenth-century British India, Thalassa Ali's dazzling
debut, A Singular Hostage, introduced us to Mariana Givens, the
Englishwoman who risked everything to save a young Indian orphan
from certain death. Now Ali returns to that exotic kingdom beyond
the northwestern frontier, where Mariana will come face-to-face
with a different destiny.
Two years have passed since Mariana left the walled city of Lahore.
But she's unable to forget its haunting scent of roses or her
ill-fated marriage to a native-born husband that has scandalized
Calcutta society and made her an outcast among the English. Worse
still, she bears the knowledge that she will be forced to give up
Saboor--the boy believed to be endowed with magical gifts whose
life she risked her own to save.
Now Mariana must revisit Lahore to return Saboor to his family and
request a divorce from Hassan Ali Khan. But how can she say
good-bye to the enigmatic man whose love defied two cultures--or
the child she's loved as her own? As political and civil strife
threaten to erupt in violence, she seeks answers in a world no
Englishwoman has ever seen. And she's driven ever closer to a
secret so powerful that it will change her life--and the lives of
those she loves--forever.
