Tory about and English man Ashton Pelham Martyn brought up as a Hindu and his passionate but dangerous love for an Indian princess It's a story of divided loyalties of tender camaraderie of greedy imperialism and of the clash Another one of my all time favorites I don't know how I stumbled on this book but its worth the 955 pages yeah really What I liked best about this book is the exploration of the main characters alienation He is neither British nor Indian Christian Muslim or Hindu he's everything and nothing all at once Actually I might recommend this book if you liked Life of Pi Although I would say that this is a much thorough and interesting tale The novel takes place in India in the late 1880s during a series of battles between Afghanistan and India and other various battles for the East India Company Ashton also called Ashok is born to an English professor and a British mother in India However his parents die of cholera when he is a baby and he is raised Hindu by a woman named Sita Ashok lives a life in poverty as an attendant for a noble family and also becomes very close to the games keeper who is Muslim and learns their traditions as well It's only when he is 13 or 14 that he learns that he is English and not Indian He's sent to British boarding school and finds himself totally alienated When he is 18 he joins the Corps of Guides and returns to India Lots of battles and love affairs follow This is a great book if you like detailed family sagas and historical novels since I believe the book is couched in actual events

The Far PavilionsA magnificent romantichistoricaladventure novel set in India at the time of mutiny The Far Pavilions is a story of 19th Century India when the thin patina of English rule held down dangerously turbulent undercurrents It is a s I can't believe I waited 25 years to read this again Oh well the first copy I had I loaned out and never got back I would give this 10 stars if I could I had forgotten how good this book was Thank you for recommending books and Listmania so many wonderful books I would never have found or rediscovered without you A truly wonderful story of star crossed lovers treachery intrigue heroism honor and bigotry The author has a great feel and understanding of India under the British Raj The story of Ash and Juli Anjuli was incredible I could literally feel Ash's pain while he had to sit through watching Juli be married to the evil Maharajah The first 23 of the book deal with Ash and Julie's early lives together culminating in the rescue of Juli from being Suttee with her sister Those pages have to be some of the most heart stopping page turning sit on the edge of your seat excitement that I have ever come across in a book and I have read a few The last portion of the book gets away from Ash and Juli although they are together and slows down to tell the story of the British incursions into Afghanistan sp?and the resultant disaster of setting up a British mission in Kabul Ash is still prominent as a spy for the guides in the disguise of a native of the country but while still a good read the story takes on a different character from the first portions of the book I resolve never to loan this book out again so that I won't lose it and to keep it on my to be read again and again shelf throughout the years Highly recommended As a side note if you are searching for a book for a younger teen to read this is a good choice The few scenes between Ash and Juli that were sexual in nature were left mostly to one's imagination This author is capable of building her scenes without graphic play by play bodice ripping Update I recently discovered another of this author's booksShadow of the Moon It's out of print but readily available used or at your library Another lovely tale of India set during the 1857 Sepoy rebellion If you enjoyed TFP you will probably enjoy this as well UpdateI have just finished another story on the Sepoy rebellion Zemindar Out of print but readily available used A wonderful tale with some of the most gorgeous prose I've seen in a long time
