M.M. Kaye's breathtaking masterpiece returns us once again to the vast, intoxicating romance of India under the British Raj, a fabled land of moonlit palace gardens, filled with whisperings of passion and intrigue. It is the story of Winter, a beautiful English heiress come home to her beloved India, and of Captain Alex Randall, her protector, aching with need to possess her. Forged in the fires of a war that threatens to topple an empire, it is the story of a desperate, consuming, unforgettable love. There are only a few novels so haunting they echo through our dreams long after the last page is read. Such a novel is Shadow of the Moon, a story that will never end, as long as the heart remembers.
