Spanning four generations, The Midnight Rose sweeps from the
glittering palaces of the great maharajas of India to the
majestic stately homes of England, following the
extraordinary life of a remarkable girl, Anahita Chaval,
from 1911 to the present day . . .
In the heyday of the British Raj, eleven-year-old Anahita,
from a noble but impovÂerished family, forms a lifelong
friendship with the headstrong Princess Indira, the
privileged daughter of Indian royalty. As the princessâ€™s
official companion, Anahita accompanies her friend to
England just before the outbreak of World War I. There, she
meets young Donald Astburyâ€”reluctant heir to the
magnifiÂcent, remote Astbury Estateâ€”and his scheming mother.
Ninety years later, Rebecca Bradley, a young American film
star, has the world at her feet. But when her turbulent
relationship with her equally famous boyfriend takes an
unexpected turn, sheâ€™s relieved that her latest role,
playing a 1920s debutante, will take her away from the glare
of publicity to a distant corÂner of the English
countryside. Shortly after filming begins at the
now-crumbling Astbury Hall, Ari Malik, Anahitaâ€™s
great-grandson, arrives unexpectedly, on a quest for his
familyâ€™s past. What he and Rebecca discover begins to
unravel the dark secrets that haunt the Astbury dynasty . . .
A multilayered, heartbreaking tale filled with unforgettable
characters caught in the sweep of history, The Midnight Rose
is Lucinda Riley at her most captivating and unforgettable.
