FEATURED EBOOK

A fascinating novel that transports us to the fabulous world of the maharajas—abundant with harems, bacchanalian orgies, jewels, palaces, flamenco music, horses, Rolls-Royces, and tiger hunting

On January 28, 1908, a young Spanish woman sitting astride a luxuriously bejeweled elephant enters a small city in northern India. The streets are packed with curious locals who are anxious to pay homage to their new princess, with skin as white as the snows of the Himalayas.

This is the beginning of the story, based on real events, of the wedding of Anita Delgado and the maharaja of Kapurthala, a grand story of love and betrayal that took place over almost two decades, in the heart of an India that was on the verge of disappearing.
