display_description"India, 1849. When Emma Hammond is left stranded and penniless after her husband is murdered by thieves while they are traveling across India, little can she know that she will soon be residing in one of the richest palaces in the country. Just six years earlier, back in England, Emma was implicated in the death of a housekeeper, but instead of the usual penalty, she was sentenced to spend ten years in India as the wife of a parson who was setting out to establish a mission. Now, seated opposite the Rajah of Jhansi, she is promised vast wealth if she will accept the position of governess to his child bride, Manikarnika--known to her intimates as Manu--who is a wild and wilful girl. The relationship between the two women is a stormy one as Manu finds herself increasingly drawn into the political turmoil that will eventually lead to Indian Mutiny."--P. [2] of jacket.
