Distant Kingdom by Daphne Wright

For twenty-six-year-old Perdita Whitney, life in India with a father she hardly remembers seems just like a fairy tale. His generosity and affection gradually heal the wounds in her soul. And her new-found happiness is crowned when she marries the man of her dreams - Lord Beaminster, the dashing hero of his regiment.

But dream turns to nightmare when her husband becomes a stranger. And as the army struggles its way through the treacherous passes of Afghanistan, Perdita must fight her own painful battle . . .

An historical romance set in the time of the first Afghan War.

'Highly recommended' Yorkshire Post

'A vivid read, an imaginative story' Publishing News

'I loved it; a delightful book, marvellously evocative of life in India' Noel Barber
