“Sherry Thomas is the most powerfully original historical romance author writing today.”—New York Times bestselling author Lisa Kleypas
The last person Bryony Asquith expects to visit her on the North-West Frontier of British India is Leo Marsden, the handsomest, most talented man she has ever met—not to mention, her husband before their marriage was quietly annulled three years ago.
Leo has loved Bryony since he was a young boy—and she the older, beautiful, coolly self-possessed girl from a neighboring estate. He only became more fascinated by her when, defying her genteel upbringing, she attended medical school and became a surgeon. Their marriage should have been a dream come true, not a silent wreck of distress and estrangement.
But now, with her father ailing, they must brave a perilous road through some of the most inhospitable terrains on earth. When a rebellion against the British Empire erupts in their path, they would risk their lives to ensure a safe passage home. But do these reunited lovers dare risk their hearts and fall in love again, when so much has gone wrong before?
Beautifully written and deeply moving, this RITA® award winner for Best Historical Romance of 2011 is simply one of the finest romances ever published.
