Nineteen-year-old Arianna and her family travel from London to India for a lavish wedding. Excitement turns to bewilderment and then curiosity when strange things start happening within the Haveli walls. A sealed door opens and Arianna is given Anjali’s diary, which recounts a romantic adventure that began during the bloody turmoil of partition in 1948.

So begins a paranormal experience that leaves Arianna stunned and demanding answers. Who is Anjali? Why did the door unseal for her? Is there something the spirit wants to show her? What could it possibly be?

    Malika, My heartiest congrats to you for this superb addition to the novels on British raj. I’ve just started reading the book and I find it to be an excellent portrayal of the fiery revolution–the Quit India Movement–that is considered to be a precursor to the freedom of India in 1947. Bravo!
