I recommend reading these books in order of time. So, I would read The Twentieth Wife, The Feast of Roses, Shadow Princess, The Mountain of Light, and finally, the Splendor of Silence. I have never considered myself well versed in the history of India, and so reading these books in order helped each successive book have more meaningful context.

This book had an amazing amount of depth to it. A myriad of stories are told, all interwoven. There is a sweet little romance in this novel, and a couple of mysteries, and a touch of adventure. But the story is also about the relationship between India and Britain, World War II, and the Nationalist Movement in India.

This story had the potential of being a fantastic, exciting story...both romantic and fast moving. However, it was SO slow. If something could have been said beautifully in 10 words, the author chose to use 500. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because the reader was fantastic. And, the only thing that made me stick with ALL 14 parts is because I wanted to see how it ended (yearning for that moment all through the book!).
