If you love novels about India, you might be interested in our book of the month, Far Pavillions! Come on over and talk about it.

Thank you so much for the warm welcome! Can't wait to participate in the ongoing discussions.

Ash, I was planning to reread Far Pavilions this month just before watching the tv adaptation. Now I have another excuse! :D

Boswellbaxter, my avatar is Eleonor of Toledo and I only use a small part of Bronzino's gorgeous painting. I don't know how many times I dreamed about having a dress just like hers. ;) You can find other portraits of Eleonor in different stages of her life.
