Publisher's Summary

In the heyday of the British Raj, Anahita becomes Princess Indira’s official companion, and accompanies her to England just before the outbreak of the Great War. There, she meets the young Donald Astbury – reluctant heir to a magnificent, estate – and his scheming mother.

A Great Story with a Superb Performance!

Loved this story for the obvious reasons...romance, history, past vs.'s all there. In my humble opinion, this is the perfect recipe for a great AUDIObook: lots of great stories out there, but the narrator makes this awesome! (So many narrators today are annoying and just plain bad! They over-enunciate and are flat and boring.) Ms. Srinivasan really brings this to life.

Historical romance at It's BEST !!!!

What did you love best about The Midnight Rose?

I love the format of "then" (1918) and now and how gracefully Lucinda Riley's words dance between the two separate time periods. Midnight Rose provides a perfect balance of historical facts mixed in with a heavy dose of romance !!!!!!!!!!

What does Anjana Srinivasan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She has a wide range of charater voices and does of perfect job bouncing between the tight repressed voices of the Brits and the emotionally abadoned voices of the indian characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any additional comments?

How long to we have to wait for the next Lucinda Riley book ???

She is on my list of FAV's !!!!!!!!!!!
