      I wish M. Throughout the book, she also showed a weakness for heavy-handed foreshadowing, to the point I could predict major plot twists long before they happened.

Dirt that would not have been found in a bedroom in Peshawar cantonment, with an English doctor to care for the young mother. Kaye also wrote and illustrated The Ordinary Princessa children's book called "refreshingly unsentimental" by an article in Horn Book Magazine [6] which she originally wrote as a short story, [7] and wrote a half a dozen detective novels, including Death in Kashmir and Death in Zanzibar.

There's also plenty of narrative discourse expounding upon the foreign ways of the East crafty, prone to lying, intricate and how they differ from the ways of the West straightforward, honest, fair and how impossible it is that ever the twain should meet.

For the majority of readers, it's Shushila. She was British and white. Racing to Bhithor, Ash and his friends manage to rescue Anjuli and take her to safety; this rescue results in the death of not only Ash's beloved horse but also most of the human members of the party.

After going AWOL in Afghanistan to restore the honour of his soldiers, penalized for losing weapons to border raiders Ash is suspended from The Guides and sent to escort a royal wedding party across India.

It was with Scott's encouragement that Kaye wrote her first historical epic of India Shadow of the Moon published in The novel highlighted how people find both comfort and frustration in cultural customs and traditions.

A lot. This sweeping epic set in 19th-century India begins in the foothills of the towering Himalayas and follows a young Indian-born orphan as he's raised in England and later returns to India where he falls in love with an Indian princess and struggles with cultural divides.

Ashton is pretty much the embodiment of this being not only caught between being British or Indian but also to a lesser extent caught between being Hindu, Christian or Muslim. But it had not taken Akbar Khan long to discover that his friend's interest in botany, ruins and the dialects of the country provided an admirable cover for another activity: the compiling of reports on the administration of the East India Company, for the benefit of certain members of Her Majesty's Government who had reason to suspect that all was not as well with India as official sources would have them believe.

It is not exactly this, but rather Anjuli finally being fully honest to herself about Shushila's true nature that allows her to come to terms with Shushila's poisonous betrayal of her and finally heal.

Wally too undergoes this to some extent : he's first seen as this very loyal, but also happy-go-lucky, not-too-serious young man. Later on however Several other real-life historical figures are mentioned though they don't actually make an appearance.

He meets Anjuli, a princess, who has a similar problem: her now dead mother was half-Indian and half-Russian, so Anjuli is not fully Indian and therefore not properly accepted.

Some years later, while still cheerful and loyal, he sheds the more juvenile aspects of his personality, and becomes much more serious, and rather less of the Wide-Eyed Idealist he was once. At age ten Mollie Kaye - as M.

Ashok makes his way to the military division Sita instructed him about, and they recognise him; now known by his English name, Ashton is turned over to English authorities and sent to England for a formal education and military training.

The Protagonist : The one and only Ashton of course. And what man can live without the one, or hope for Heaven without the other? But there was so much between those moments of adventure that were not Cecil Kaye was an intelligence officer in the Indian Army; and M.

Rescue Romance : Ashton saves Anjuli from drowning when the palanquin she is riding in topples over when the massive bridal party is crossing the river. He quickly finds that his sense of place is torn between his new-found status as Ashton, an English " sahib ", and Ashok, the native Indian boy he once believed he was.

It just wasn't what I had wanted. It was better, infinitely better, to have loved Juli and lost her than not to have loved her at all. While she was alive I had to stand aside and see you sacrifice yourself and our whole future for her sake, and now that she's dead it seems that you are just as determined to wreck the rest of our lives by brooding and moping and moaning over her memory.

When he's reunited with her after all those years apart, Ashton in turn, feels this way to Anjuli though it only dawns upon him when he comforts her after revealing that he is indeed the Ashok she remembers. Dark and Troubled Past : Not everything, but from the time Ashton goes to work and then later on, becomes a playmate for the spoiled prince Lalji of the Palace of Winds, until his escape to save his own life some years later.

I've read some other things by Kaye, but they were specifically mysteries. Later on after she and Ashton are married, she quickly picks up English when he teaches her.
