This review is from: Maharanis: The Lives and Times of Three Generations of Indian Princesses (Paperback)
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating world, 6 Mar. 2014

I revisited this book after 8 years prompted by a trip to Rajasthan. Wonderful to see the places so vividly described in this book. An insight into the Indian fixation with alcohol, many of the male protagonists were alcoholics.
