Books Info:

Under the Jewelled Sky free pdf Set in the last days of the Raj, a love story for India, for a lost world and an ill-fated love. London, 1957. In a bid to erase her past, Sophie Schofield accepts a proposal from ambitious British diplomat Lucien Grainger. When he is posted to New Delhi, into the glittering circle of ex-pat society, old wounds begin to break open as Sophie is confronted with the memory of her first, forbidden love and its devastating consequences. This is not the India she fell in love with ten years before in a maharajah's palace, the India that ripped out her heart as Partition tore the country in two. And so begins the unravelling of an ill-fated marriage, setting in motion a catastrophic chain of events that will bring her face to face with a past she has tried so desperately to forget and a future she must fight for. This is a tender story of love, loss of innocence and the aftermath of a terrible decision no one knew how to avoid.
