From the Inside Flap:

"An amazing literary feat and a masterpiece of storytelling. Once again, Bharati Mukherjee prove
she is one of our foremost writers, with the literary muscles to weave both the future and the past into a tale that is singularly intelligent and provocative."
--AMY TAN
This is the remarkable story of Hannah Easton, a unique woman born in the American colonies in 1670, "a person undreamed of in Puritan society." Inquisitive, vital and awake to her own possibilities, Hannah travels to Mughal, India, with her husband, and English trader. There, she sets her own course, "translating" herself into the Salem Bibi, the white lover of a Hindu raja.
It is also the story of Beigh Masters, born in New England in the mid-twentieth century, an "asset hunter" who stumbles on the scattered record of her distant relative's life while tracking a legendary diamond. As Beigh pieces together details of Hannah's journeys, she finds herself drawn into the most intimate and spellbinding fabric of that remote life, confirming her belief that with "sufficient passion and intelligence, we can decontrsuct the barriers of time and geography...."

Book Description Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First UK Edition. CH3 - A hard cover first edition book in very good+ condition. The words FIRST PUBLISHED and the year appear on the copyright page with no additional printings indicated. A tight, clean, sound copy in black paper covered boards quarter bound in black cloth with gold lettering on the spine with only very minor overall shelf wear. The dust jacket shows only very minor overall shelf wear. A novel in which the narrator is a Yale graduate who has used her history degree to develop a career in "assets research," tracking down rare art and jewels for wealthy clients. She develops a fascination with a New England woman who, in 1670, married an English trader, moved with him to India, and became the lover of a Hindu prince. The story becomes the historian's novel of this exotic New Englander's story with an emphasis on the scholar's focus on the collision of cultural values, the power wielded by unconventional women and the revenge that society exacts on these women. The author is a winner of a National Book Critics Circle Award. By the author of "The Tiger's Daughter," "Wife," "Darkness," "The Middleman and Other Stories," and "Jasmine." 286p.
