The World Beyond by Sangeeta Bhargava

1855, Lucknow. As tensions simmer in the heat of repressive colonial India, an English woman and a prince of Avadh, defy their societies' prejudices to fall in love. But Salim and Rachael's world is about to be torn apart. Trouble begins when the British annex Avadh and banish the rightful king. Salim is determined to recover what is rightfully his and when a small sepoy mutiny flares into bloody rebellion against British rule, he seizes the chance to fight back. Soon unrest spreads across the subcontinent and the contested ancient city of Lucknow proves one of the most dangerous places to be. Torn between their loyalties to each other, their families and the opposing sides that threaten to raze Lucknow to the ground - can Salim and Rachael's love survive?

Love books. Love reading. Love reading books. And, here's the trick. Here's a website which caters for people like me.

Ian Harvey-brown

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.


Discover new authors and enjoy old favourites; oodles of literary gems to uncover at Lovereading with candid reviews from real reviewers.

Emily Wright

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
