We all remember certain sweeping novels we hated to see come to an end; it was almost like breaking up with someone we love. You will feel that way about The Far Pavilions. From the foothills of the Himalayas, through the palaces of the exotic East, this novel is a passionate and triumphant story that excites us, fills us with joy, moves us to tears, and helps us remember just what it is we want most from a novel.
A mesmerizing story of hatred and bitter combat; of courage, and human sacrifice, of the star-crossed wedding of East and West. Above all it is a tale of love. The story of Ash, an Englishman, and Juli, a princess who must choose between the heritage of her people and the man she loves. It is a story that transcends time and place, a Monumental epic we will never forget.
