Really enjoyable and readable account of 20th centruy Indian history. Lucy Moore really brings to life the lives of her four princesses, and the worlds they inhabited. Highly reccommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book not only tells the (true) stories of four maharanis - it also gives a huge amount of detail about Indian history in the twentieth century, such as the relationship between the princely states and the British government and how independence affected the ruling families. It is a rather poignant look at a world that no longer exists. The book is full of quirky facts / memories which make the history of these families come alive. I have read many books on indian history but this one was very different in that it had such a strong human angle. I can't wait to visit India again - I will see places such as Jaipur very differently now that I know more about the history of its ruling family.

This was enjoyable and informative especially if you live in East Sussex where the families stayed and their children were educated.
