JOAN IN INDIA by Suzanne Falkiner

In 1939, young Joan Falkiner’s spirited flight from South Yarra to princely India and her marriage to the Muslim ruler of a small state in Gujarat sent shockwaves through Melbourne society and political reverberations throughout the Raj and—as the kingdoms were about to disappear forever in the maelstrom of Indian Independence—as high as the British throne.
How did it all come about? Through conversations in Melbourne, Mumbai and the South of France, research in the India Office Library in London, and her own observations while travelling in modern India – Suzanne Falkiner traces the course of a most unusual love story.
