Description


Step into the heart-wrenching story of treachery, lust and plunder at the birth of the British Empire in India-and the redemptive power of love in the fight for justice.

In 1774, renowned British general Robert Clive is found dead with his throat cut. His hasty and secretive burial in an unmarked grave marks the end of a life defined by ambition, cunning, and greed in the name of building an empire.

Two decades earlier, Clive is a promising young general facing insurmountable odds. Locked in a grueling power struggle against Diwan Mohan Roy of Bengal, Clive's mere 6000 troops face an army of 30,000 men. But with the help of the powerful-and treacherous-banker Omichund, Clive sets in motion a devious plan to claim the wealthy province of Bengal for the British East India Company.

Meanwhile, a centuries-old rival is stirring. Led by Joseph Francois Dupleix and his young prot g Jules St Clair, the French are eager to defeat their archenemy in India. They join forces with the Diwan-and quickly uncover a tumult of rivalries that threaten to pull Bengal apart at the seams. Nothing, it seems, can stop Robert Clive from having his empire. But even Clive could never have foreseen the cold determination of the beautiful and courageous daughter of Diwan Mohan Roy, Anjolie.

From the picturesque plains of India to the stunning cities of 18th-century Europe, this adventure follows the saga of the Roy-St Clair family as they battle the British colonialists for the fate of India.

Expertly written with authentic historical details and a gripping narrative, Arms Wide Asunder is a powerful read that explores the redemptive power of love, justice, and an unlikely sisterhood against all odds.
