I have read this book and seen the mini series. It is worth a good read and a good see.
24 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

I really love this movie. I, at variously times, read books which I think would make a great movie or mini-series. I was most pleased at the time to see they did make it into a mini series. The Actors (Ben Cross & Amy Irving) did a great job of portraying the main characters and even the lessor characters were portrayed well. The movie left out none of the appeal of the book. I strongly encourage anyone to read this book or see the mini series version of it. Please Read. Please See. *smiles* If you are a history buff, this will interest you as well; as it is set in the 1900's during the later day occupation of the English crown of India. A most romantic period in my eyes of that country.
