From the #1 international bestselling author of The Orchid House—an epic saga of two remarkable women and two love stories spanning the years from 1920s India to modern-day England.

Spanning four generations, The Midnight Rose sweeps from the glittering palaces of the great maharajas of India to the majestic stately homes of England, following the extraordinary life of a remarkable girl, Anahita Chaval, from 1911 to the present day . . .

In the heyday of the British Raj, eleven-year-old Anahita, from a noble but impov­erished family, forms a lifelong friendship with the headstrong Princess Indira, the privileged daughter of Indian royalty. As the princess’s official companion, Anahita accompanies her friend to England just before the outbreak of WorldWar I. There, she meets young Donald Astbury—reluctant heir to the magnifi­cent, remote Astbury Estate—and his scheming mother.

Ninety years later, Rebecca Bradley, a young American film star, has the world at her feet. But when her turbulent relationship with her equally famous boyfriend takes an unexpected turn, she’s relieved that her latest role, playing a 1920s debutante, will take her away from the glare of publicity to a distant cor­ner of the English countryside. Shortly after filming begins at the now-crumbling Astbury Hall, Ari Malik, Anahita’s great-grandson, arrives unexpectedly, on a quest for his family’s past. What he and Rebecca discover begins to unravel the dark secrets that haunt the Astbury dynasty . . .

A multilayered, heartbreaking tale filled with unforgettable characters caught in the sweep of history, The Midnight Rose is Lucinda Riley at her most captivating and unforgettable.

Midnight Rose was the first book by Lucinda Riley that I have read. She is now my favorite author. I loved the book. I read the entire book in two days because I couldn't put it down. Since then I have read The Lavender Garden and The Orchid House, which I also loved. I'm looking forward to my next read by Lucinda Riley.

I've read all of Lucinda Riley's books and even though Midnight Rose is the best, they are all wonderful. You don't want them to end! She gets you hooked by page 2!

I have read all of Lucinda Riley's novels and this another that just doesn't disappoint! The past and the present are brought together with a plot centered around Anahita, who makes a poignant plea to her grandson upon her death, to uncover the truth to her past. Crossing India and British borders, in a time spanning from the early 1900's to present, this beautifully written novel has all the elements of a fabulous read - mystery, suspense, romance and drama, hard to put down, and leaving me with bated breath for Ms. Riley's next novel. My book club adored this one, as with all the others by this talented author, and collectively we highly recommend the rad to other book clubs!

I have followed this author for a very long time and looked forward to this book, but without giving spoilers, I was disappointed.
