Shortlisted for the Epic Novel award in the Romantic Novelists Association Books Awards.

Spanning four generations, The Midnight Rose by Lucinda Riley sweeps from the glittering palaces of the great maharajas of India to the majestic stately homes of England, following the extraordinary life of a girl, Anahita Chavan, from 1911 to the present day . . .

A lifelong passion. An endless search.

In the heyday of the British Raj, eleven-year-old Anahita, from a noble but impoverished family, forms a lifelong friendship with the headstrong Princess Indira, the privileged daughter of rich Indian royalty. Becoming the princess's official companion, Anahita accompanies her friend to England just before the outbreak of the Great War. There, she meets the young Donald Astbury - reluctant heir to the magnificent, remote Astbury Estate - and his scheming mother.

Eighty years later, Rebecca Bradley, a young American film star, has the world at her feet. But when her turbulent relationship with her equally famous boyfriend takes an unexpected turn, she's relieved that her latest role, playing a 1920s debutante, will take her away from the glare of publicity to the wilds of Dartmoor in England. Shortly after filming begins at the now-crumbling Astbury Hall, Ari Malik, Anahita's great-grandson, arrives unexpectedly, on a quest for his family's past. What he and Rebecca discover begins to unravel the dark secrets that haunt the Astbury dynasty . . .

Lucinda Riley was born in Ireland, and after an early career as an actress in film, theatre and television, wrote her first book aged twenty-four. Her books have been translated into thirty-seven languages and sold twenty million copies worldwide. She is a No.1 Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller.

Lucinda is the author of The Seven Sisters series, which tells the story of adopted sisters and is based allegorically on the mythology of the famous star constellation. It has become a global phenomenon, with each book in the series being a No.1 bestseller across the world. The series is in development with a major Hollywood production company.

In der ihr eigenen speziellen Art verknüft und verwebt Frau Riley eine 3-Generationengeschichte, die in die Zeit der Maharadschas in Indien und kräuterkundigen Heilerinnen aus diesem Land bis in die Kriegsjahre in England und dem standesbewussten Adel, dem aber bald das Geld ausgeht, reicht. Der Roman ist voller unerwarteter Wendungen und dramatischer Vorgänge. Langeweile kommt bei keiner Seite auf. Der Schluss ist ebenso überraschend wie vieles in der Geschichte. Die Erzählkunst ist hier zur Vollkommenheit gebracht worden.

a wonderful, inspiring story
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Adendorf am 09.09.2014

I love this book. It's a truly amazing story about what happend to a little indian girl whilst growing up in the 1920. It was very hard for me to close the book when I had finished reading. I thought the story could have been much longer and I still would have been reading it to the end.
