Novel "A Sahib's Daughter" by Nina Harkness Launched in Paperback on Amazon


Love crosses racial boundaries in this saga set in tea plantation society in post independence India. "A Sahib's Daughter" reveals the conflicts that arise as a result of the merging of two cultures.

Naples, FL, May 26, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Popular Novel “A Sahib’s Daughter” by Nina Harkness is Now in Print, Available though Amazon

Forbidden love finds expression within the confines of a unique social order: “A Sahib’s Daughter,” a novel by Nina Harkness takes readers on an intriguing journey as three generations of women grapple with secrets, scandal and undeniable passions of the heart, during the post-Raj Indian era. Released in 2012 to much acclaim, “A Sahib’s Daughter” is now in print, available through Amazon and Amazon Kindle Direct:

With a creative balance of fiction and historical accuracy, Harkness draws on childhood memories of growing up in the privileged post-colonial traditions of India’s tea plantation society to create a story with unexpected depth. The tale of “A Sahib’s Daughter” unfolds through vivid imagery as she skillfully develops the book’s main characters: A grandmother named Prava, her daughter, Ramona, and granddaughter, Samira, each whose fate is transformed through encounters with British tea planters. However, encounters such as these pose a difficult question.

Bucking centuries of tradition, is it conceivable that new-era British sahibs would marry local Indian women? "In the past, certainly, they made promises and spoke fine words. They even gave a woman a good time, sometimes living with her for years and fathering several children,” Harkness writes.

Amidst the backdrop of aromatic tea plantations, love crosses racial boundaries with a richness and intensity that readers find hard to resist. Now in print, the book continues to receive strong, five-star reviews:

“[The book is] captivating from beginning to end. Its unpredictability made it very difficult to put down,” raves Jean Bricknell.

Another reader, B. Miller, writes, “[A Sahib’s Daughter] was full of suspense, intrigue, and romance, and I could barely put the book aside until I finished this amazing story.”

And Linda H. writes, “I couldn't put this book down! A Sahib’s Daughter will inspire you to pack your bags and embark on an exotic adventure through the [Dooars] of the Himalayan Mountains.”

But pursuit of love is only one theme that contributes to the novel’s complexity. More than a simple romance, each chapter touches upon the realities of Anglo-Indian culture, where having “mixed blood” truly shapes the color and course of one’s world. And in a final twist, one woman will never discover her true identity—a secret another will take to her grave.

Readers can purchase a paperback copy of “A Sahib’s Daughter” through Amazon.com SRP $13.99.
