Publisher's Summary

The author of The Far Pavilions returns us once again to the vast, intoxicating romance of India under the British Raj. Shadow of the Moon is the story of Winter de Ballesteros, a beautiful English heiress come home to her beloved India. It is also the tale of Captain Alex Randall, her protector, who aches to possess her. Forged in the fires of a war that threatens to topple an empire, their tale is the saga of a desperate and unforgettable love that consumes all in its thrall. Filled with the mystery of moonlit palace gardens and the whisperings of passion and intrigue, M. M. Kaye evokes an era at once of its time, yet timeless.

Has always been a great story.

Would you consider the audio edition of Shadow of the Moon to be better than the print version?

Not necessarily. Have owned a printed copy for nearly 30 years and have always enjoyed reading it, when time permitted. In the last few years I have come to appreciate the portability of audio books, and the luxury to listen while engaged in other tasks not condusive to holding a book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Tara Ochs?

Vikas Adams who is the narrator of The Far Pavilions. His voice and characterizations were spot on for the story. He brought all of it to life.
Tara Ochs has a good voice for nonfiction, but is far too bland for performing.

Any additional comments?

If possible redo the narration for this story and get Vikas Adams to it.

Wonderful story

What made the experience of listening to Shadow of the Moon the most enjoyable?

This book is a long-time favorite. Even though I've read it multiple times, listening to an audio version makes any book new again.

What aspect of Tara Ochs’s performance would you have changed?

I was disappointed by her mispronunciation of words (vehemence and desultory are two examples) as well as inconsistent British accents for the same characters. Shame on the director and producer for allowing it too.
