The Envy of Paradise

In 1858, the British took over the city of Lucknow, paving the way for Queen Victoria’s reign over India. But what happened to Begam Hazrat Mahal, the woman of African-Indian descent who had valiantly organized a final key resistance to British rule, and to her ex-husband, Wajid ‘Ali Shah, the last King in India, who remained imprisoned by the British? The Envy of Paradise tells their stories.
