Prince Rabi, the fiercely proud heir to the throne of Devapur, and Sophie, the headstrong daughter of the British Resident, have known each other from childhood. Growing up in a world fraught with political intrigue and divided loyalties, both were aware of the troubled alliance that existed between the British and the Indians-and of the boundary between them that they were forbidden to cross. But all this changes one night when, during the revelries of a village festival, the two find themselves passionately drawn to each other. Realizing what is at stake, the lovers dare to defy every rule of class and race-only to find themselves torn apart on the crossroads of desire and destiny.
Panoramic in its sweep and intimate in its portrayal of human relationships, The Golden Honeycomb is an epic love story set against the splendour and turbulence of the British Raj and the growing struggle for Indian independence.
