I shouldn’t have waited so long Mariana, originally sent to India to find a husband and work as a translator between the British and local Indians, instead finds herself drawn into a plot This book sat on my shelf for six years before I picked it up.

Mariana, originally sent to India to find a husband and work as a translator between the British and local Indians, instead finds herself drawn into a plot of espionage as she becomes the primary and secret caretaker for an infant who was being held prisoner by the Maharajah himself.

This is a quick and engaging read, and I may pick up the sequel soon just to find out more about the witty, likable protagonist. ALi’s writing could be a little more complex, and often wanders into young adult territory particularly the descriptions of Mariana and Fitzgerald, her suitorbut overall the plot kept me interested. Dec 01, Jana rated it really liked it Recommends it for: I enjoyed this book, set in Victorian India, with a headstrong heroine who doesn’t conform to the English rules.

Those who enjoy historical fiction will like this. Jan 06, Colleen rated it liked it Shelves: In the beginning, I was totally drawn into Mariana’s story and had high hopes about this novel. The hints of tragedy in her past, her love of India and her sense of adventure make Mariana a very sympathetic heroine; I for one hoped that she was going to find happiness with Harry Fitzgerald, the one suitor who seemed to understand her. The desciption of life in India, the glimpses into the walled compounds of women, and the mystical undercurrent to Indian life added immeasurably to the narrative, In the beginning, I was totally drawn into Mariana’s story and had high hopes about this novel.

The desciption of life in India, the glimpses into the walled compounds of women, and the mystical undercurrent to Indian life added immeasurably to the narrative, until about two-thirds of the way through when the book suddenly took a turn into the absurd.

Mariana’s inexplicable decision to thrust herself into an untenable situation coupled with her subsequent inability to explain her way out struck me as ridiculous.

A Singular Hostage

From the nidije in the Maharajah’s Citadel to the very end of the book, I was exasperated with Mariana and with the novel itself. The ending knjgia rushed and left everything unresolved, a decision that makes slightly more sense now that I see there are two more installments to the story, but still weakens the quality of the book. I’m just happy to be finished with Mariana and will certainly not be picking up volumes 2 and 3 of this epic.

The portrayal of the British’s condescending attitude toward the natives, and their snobbery toward Mariana was unsettling. We never like to think badly about our ancestors, but often they behaved horribly. Jan 22, Susanne rated it it was amazing Shelves: I loved this book.

Have gone back to it a number of times when there seemed to be nothing compelling on my book shelf. A fascinating historical read, a satisfying bit of romance, a clear-eyed and accurate look at the British in India with all dagulj myopic sense of superiority.

A young Englishwoman, shipped off to British India to find a suitable husband among Queen Victoria’s military community, becomes entangled with local politics when she is thrust into the position of rescuer and guardian of a young child being held political hostage by the Maharaja of Punjab.

The descriptions of life in northern India now Pakistan during the early years of Queen Victoria’s reign, is suitably colorful, but the action borders on the melodramatic, with many hair-raising escapades, a forced wedding, an escape from the seraglio, an is-it-or-isn’t-it romance, and an ending that just kind of dribbles off without a clear resolution. Ali, American-born and married to a Pakistani, manages barely to stay out of bodice-ripper territory, mostly by keeping everyone chaste.

But her heroine is cut from the traditional cloth — an independent, unconventional, headstrong maiden whose curiosity about the exotic locale leads her, step by step, into deeper intrigue and danger.

It’s not a bad read, but don’t expect much more than light entertainment here.

The English lifestyle is portrayed well thought thru and researched well however it wont bind you fro a long time because there are too many repetitions. The main protagonist if i may say so is shown attracted to elephants initially so strongly in few pages and then the whole thing has no mention after a while in the whole book.

People just believe him and go ignore the fact that he has stolen the baby. The baby’s grandfather, Shaikah, claims that the only peron that can save Saboor is Mariana. So one mysterious night, the british camp is invited to dinner with the Marajah and that is the night she indlje the baby.

The next day, the Marajah ask xragulj hand in marriage but in front of everyone she claims she is engaged to Hassan when really she isn’t. Her life starts to get more interesting as the book progresses dragupj the end. This story is written in 3rd person point of view because throughout the book the pronouns of He, She, Him, Her come up.

I can’t tell who the narrator of the story is because there are many characters in this story. I indijje enjoyed this book because at every chapter it left you imaging what might happen next and in some parts the authour Thalassia Ali, shows the scenes rather than telling them.

For example, the part when the servents take her and prepare her for her wedding, is clear example of a show rather than tell scene.

I would recommend this book to whoever loves adventure and suspense because this book is full of it. I wouldn’t recommend this book for anyone how doesn’t like love scenes because there are love scenes but they are not that bad to handle. Other than that, this book is an amazing book to read as an historical fiction book. Out of 5 stars, I give this book a 4.

This is not my usual type of book but I was looking for a change and I found it in this tale of India now Pakistan in the early s. I am not one to like overdone romance novels, so I am glad the fledgling courtships did not occupy too much of the storyline. Instead we have a story of decent families trumping whatever social and political barriers are put in their way.

And there are a lot of strict rules of behavior to attend to for women, whether they are British or “native”. That part was This is not my usual type of book but I was looking for a change and I found it in this tale of India now Pakistan in the early s. That part was the most frustrating for me, as it would have been for Mariana, the main actor in our story.

The characters ranged from abhorrent to delightful, but this is not a literary novel of growth and experience. No, it is almost like a fairy tale, with mystical aspects as well as real horrors.

It was interesting to read about the lives of women, both British and native, and about different natives from all walks of life.
