Only 1 left in stock (more on the way). I know the author of this book is quite well known for her other historical novel, "The Linnet Bird" which I have in my stack but haven't yet read-though I've heard a lot of praise for it. Praise that seems hard to justify if it is anything like this book. The Moonlit Cage" isn't bad really. In fact it's rather engrossing and I sped through its 500 or so pages in a day. But though the story kept me reading it never really connected with the characters.

Although he is a complete stranger, she joins him on his journey to Bombay-and embarks on the adventure of a lifetime.

Praise for Linda Holeman. strength is a tremendous ability to create multiple plotlines and then weave them until they’re tied off in a satisfying knot. Holeman is a master of dramatic tension and of seducing a reader’s attention. LINDA HOLEMAN is the author of the international bestselling historical novels The Linnet Bird, The Moonlit Cage, In a Far Country and The Saffron Gate, as well as eight other works of fiction and short fiction. A world traveller, she grew up and was educated in Winnipeg, and was a teacher for ten years before she began to write.
When we read The Moonlit Cage, by Linda Holeman, we were absorbed by main character Darya's timeless (and placeless) struggle for independence as much as we were captivated by its descriptions of the lush landscape and diverse cultures. Darya, who was born into a traditional Muslim family, faces many of the same circumstances characteristic of traditional Victorian heroines from that period - namely, having little say in life-changing decisions and facing the consequences when one does stand up to the men responsible for making them.
