Wow, this book arrived today all the way from Varanasi, India. It was kindly sent by Banyantree, who is quite new to bookcrossing. To send a book to me all the way from India to Canada, I think is very special. Thank you so much. I will look out for a book for you too!

Firstly I must apologize to Banyantree for taking so long to journal this amazing book.I actually read it ages ago.
I really like this author, and once again he did not disapoint.This book is set in Burma around 1885. It is the facinating story of a boy called Rajkumar. When soldiers force the royal family out of the "Glass Palace" Rajkumar becomes the friend of Dolly, a young girl in the court of the Burmese Queen.Dolly is in love with him and that love stays with him.He cannot forgot her, many years later he is a very rich man and goes in search of her.

From the publisher:-
"The struggles that have made Burma,India and Maylaya the places they are today are illuminated in this wonderful novel by the writer Chitra Divakaruni calls "a master storyteller"
