The Midnight Rose (English Edition) Versión Kindle
Shortlisted for the Epic Novel award in the Romantic Novelists Association Books Awards.
Spanning four generations, The Midnight Rose by Lucinda Riley sweeps from the glittering palaces of the great maharajas of India to the majestic stately homes of England, following the extraordinary life of a girl, Anahita Chavan, from 1911 to the present day . . .
A lifelong passion. An endless search.
In the heyday of the British Raj, eleven-year-old Anahita, from a noble but impoverished family, forms a lifelong friendship with the headstrong Princess Indira, the privileged daughter of rich Indian royalty. Becoming the princess's official companion, Anahita accompanies her friend to England just before the outbreak of the Great War. There, she meets the young Donald Astbury – reluctant heir to the magnificent, remote Astbury Estate – and his scheming mother.
Eighty 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, she's relieved that her latest role, playing a 1920s debutante, will take her away from the glare of publicity to the wilds of Dartmoor in England. Shortly after filming begins at the now-crumbling Astbury Hall, Ari Malik, Anahita's great-grandson, arrives unexpectedly, on a quest for his family's past. What he and Rebecca discover begins to unravel the dark secrets that haunt the Astbury dynasty . . .
'A captivating read from Lucinda Riley. Ideal for a book club' - Daily Mail/Femail

Beautifully written - easy to read and pick up / put down) - absolute page turner (for me) and loved reading about Indian history.
Negatives - towards the end some of the plot is ridiculous and unnecessary ie suddenly we learn someone is living in the attic! Also I cannot believe Indira’s family would have forgiven Anahita so easily and without any repercussions. We don’t ever seem to learn who Rebecca’s father was?? Like others have said Anahita as a character is captivating but other characters are bland.
Overall - this book completely took over my week! I loved it and would recommend it and maybe the ridiculous parts give you something to think about :-)
I’m an extremely critical reader (I read a huge amount!) and one thing that consistently lets a book down is the ending. I often find them rushed and somehow out of step with the rest of the novel.
This ending was better than some but, in my opinion, left the reader hanging. Perhaps it was meant to. However, I was disappointed and expected more! Perhaps Ms Riley is planning a sequel? I certainly hope so!
Although I found much of the writing brilliant, I did think some of the sentences a bit 'clunky' and could have done with editing and I'm not sure there was a need to explain what chloroform is used for. I was also dubious that the police, even in 1922, would arrest a young woman leaving her young child alone in a cottage.
But other than these slight quibbles, I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a sweeping historical romance. A well deserved four stars.
