Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award

With rare subtlety, impressive scope, and a keen eye for detail, Gita Mehta lays bare the complexities of Indian culture and history in Raj, the remarkable story of a woman of royal birth coming of age during India's fight for independence.

Jaya - the intelligent, beautiful, and compassionate daughter of the Maharajah of Balmer - has been raised in the thousand-year-old tradition of purdah, a strict regime of seclusion, silence, and submission. But with the premature death of her decadent, Westernized husband, Jaya must assume the role of Regent Maharani of Sirpur. She soon finds herself thrust into the center of a roiling political battle which will force Jaya to realize her future as a leader of the Indian people.

    " Walaupun buku ini merupakan sebuah cerita fiksi, tapi menggambarkan latar belakang sejarah yang sangat akurat. Menggambarkan ketika inggris masih bercokol di daratan India. Hingga sampai akhirnya India (dan pakistan) berada pada ujung kemerdekaannya. Dibumbui dengan cerita pertautan hati antara sang Maharani dengan sahabatnya sejak kecil, sayangnya perbedaan ras (yang satu ningrat india, sementara yang lain adalah pejabat Inggris) menghalangi mereka. Perjalanan Maharani dari sejak kecil, kemudian kehilangan kakaknya, ibu dan ayah, hingga akhirnya ditinggal suaminya sangat menarik disimak. Karena setiap momen dibubuhi latar belakang sejarah yang kuat. Sehingga anda tidak hanya mendapatkan cerita fiksi, tapi juga pelajaran sejarah pada saat yang sama. :) "

    " I am finding this fascinating. There is so much that I don't know about history that a novel like this one is interesting and full of surprises. "

    " I read this book years ago, but remember being engrossed. It's a cool piece of historical fiction set in in the time of the British Raj in India. "
