The story of one Englishwoman’s remarkable relationship with an Indian princess at the height of the British Empire . . . India, 1849. When Emma Hammond is left penniless in India after her husband is murdered by thieves, little does she know that she will soon be residing in one of the richest palaces in the country. Just six years earlier, back in England, Emma was implicated in the death of a housekeeper and sentenced to ten years exile in India. Now, unable to return home, she sits before Manikarnika, known to her intimates as Manu, who has promised her vast wealth – if she can teach the wild young girl how to behave like a princess . . .
