Afterwards
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2004; 0143030299 / 9780143030294; First Edition; Paperback; New; New; 
There is always, if not exactly a ‘happily ever after’, at least an ‘afterwards’ to every story … When Rahul Tiwari arrives in Kerala for a short break from London, he has no premonition of a life-changing moment. But one glance over the fence at his lovely but reticent neighbour Maya is enough to launch him on a path of no return. He finds himself playing friend, partner, co-conspirator, and finally the entirely unexpected role of saviour as Maya, suffocating under the weight of a loveless marriage and a suspicious husband, turns to him for help. Together, they flee India with Maya’s one-year-old daughter Anjali and life seems to hold all the promise of a new beginning, until destiny strikes … With characteristic ease and insight, Jaishree Misra writes in her new novel of the transforming power of love and of the joy and heartbreak of giving yourself to another, for better or for worse. 000980

2 Jaishree Misra
Rani
Penguin; New Delhi, India; 2007; 0143102109 / 9780143102106; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
When thirteen-year-old Manikarnika leaves her father’s court-in-exile to marry the king of Jhansi, little does she realize the burden of greatness awaiting her. As she grows from a headstrong and spirited girl into a young woman wise beyond her years, learning to put aside personal disappointments and desires to emerge as a capable queen beloved of her people, she watches the political landscape around her shift and change chillingly under the control of the powerful East India Company. When the British annex Jhansi after the tragic deaths of her infant son and husband, Rani Lakshmibai turns for help to Robert Ellis, an officer in the East India Company and Jhansi’s political agent. But as war clouds gather and they find themselves ranged on either side of an impassable divide, his attempts to assist her, while staying loyal to his own government, are as destined to falter as is their increasing emotional attachment. Doomed love becomes a dramatic and unforgettable metaphor for Empire even as Lord Dalhousie’s Doctrine of Lapse is all set to alter forever the contours of not only their lives but also the land they have both come to love. While Ellis is sent away in disgrace, Lakshmibai, in the company of her comrades-inarms and childhood playmates Tantia Tope and Nanasahib,isinexorably drawn into the vortex of the Great Mutiny of 1857, with catastrophic consequences.
