Dishonoured

(1995)
A novel by

 
India, 1857: Colonel Reginald Mills, a commander of the British occupying forces, loses his beloved wife to the savagery of revolution. Outraged and grieving, and suspecting the involvement of the wealthy Rai family, he imprisons both Indrajit Rai and his son Jagat. Indrajit dies a broken man in a desolate jail cell, but the seventeen-year-old Jagat escapes. Leaving behind a shattered family and a plundered fortune that was his birthright, he vows revenge on the Mills name. Phillip Mills returns to India a century later, mirroring his grandfather's views, holding Indians of every caste beneath contempt. He sees his bride as a necessary ornament needed to further his career and his mistress as a means to satisfy his voracious carnal needs, regardless of the emotional price she might pay. Jane Mills, Phillip's bride, has resigned herself to a loveless marriage and manages to find some happiness capturing the lush beauty of her new home in her art. Then, after a shocking revelation, she turns to the only man who can comfort her, a kindred soul whose love is forbidden - and whose passion stirs in her a desire so sweet she is powerless to fight it. Rami Rai is a poet torn by the demands of his family and the longings of his heart. Introspective and ever faithful to India and its people, he cannot reconcile himself to ancient decrees and blood feuds - and will be forced to choose between hallowed tradition and the woman he loves. And decades later in London, Indi Mills will embark on a quest to uncover the murky layers shrouding her past, only to encounter violence and treachery at every turn. For her very existence sparks a resurgence of hatred and awakens long-dormant memories. From the passion of a stolen kiss in a perfumed tropical garden to the anguish of a young woman seeking her elusive heritage, DISHONORED plumbs our deepest emotions and wrestles with heart-wrenching choices. Here is an epic tale of human nature at its best and worst - and its eternal struggle.
