5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Laura Stout on May 26, 2009
Format: Paperback
In spite of the title more suited to a Romance novel, the book is a historical narrative based on the real story of a ruling Prince of India in the latter part of the XIX century, who meets a young Spanish dancer while attending the wedding of King Alfonso XIII of Spain and falls madly in love. Moro brings alive the incredible wealth that the ruling princes enjoyed during the Raj, the prevailing customs in India and the complicated social and political relationship between the English officialdom and the Indian nobility. His description of the way of life in India with its harsh cast system, its dilettante nobility and the Victorian morals of the English rulers, provides a virtual gate to life at the time.

Not sure about the historical accuracy of the facts in the book and am curious to get some feedback on that. That aside, incredibly interesting and well written book. Provides a view into the culture of these "Raja's" who were just wealthy puppets of the British and how they lived. Amazing detail on the palace life and regional politics and the british raj. One of the more interesting books read in a while.

Excellent research and story telling. Surprisingly the Maharaja has been treated with a lot of care and praise. He comes out as a rather benevolent, caring and large hearted ruler, unlike the others in the neighborhood.

Format: Paperback
What an amazing wealth of British and Indian (pre 1947) history. What a rich texture Moro builds into the real life story of beautiful Spanish dancer and the maharaja she marries as a fifth wife. Truly a story that stays with you of the exotic time and place in which she lived.
