The moment Sophie steps onto India's burning soil, she realizes her return was inevitable. But this is not the India she fell in love with ten years before in a maharaja's palace. This is not the India that ripped her heart out as Partition tore the country in two. That India, a place of tigers, scorpions, and shimmering beauty, is long gone.Now Sophie must confront her past in order to fight for her future.
This is not the India--or the man--that Sophie fell in love with ten years ago...Sophie never meant to come back to India, yet when her new, diplomat husband is posted to New Delhi and she steps once again onto the country's burning soil, she realizes her return was inevitable. As her ill-fated marriage begins to unravel, it sets in motion a devastating chain of events that will bring Sophie face to face with a past she's tried so desperately to forget, and a future she must fight for. Under the Jeweled Sky is a tender story of love, loss of innocence, and the aftermath of a terrible decision no one knew how to avoid.

Absolutely loved this book!! Wish there were more like these....I couldn't put it down. Challenged me to stay engaged in each paragraph; the language is subtle but can reveal a new complexity or twist in the plot if you try to speed through descriptions. I loved how that kept me engaged.

The story follows 2 different lives but jumps ahead and back in time for each of them. May take a while to figure out where and when it is, but definitely adds to the excitement of the book.
Great love story!
