Since her husband's death, 28-year-old photojournalist Eliza's only companion has been her camera.

When the British Government send her to an Indian princely state to photograph the royal family, she's determined to make a name for herself. But when Eliza arrives at the palace she meets Jay, the Prince's handsome, brooding brother.

While Eliza awakens Jay to the poverty of his people, he awakens her to the injustices of British rule. Soon Jay and Eliza find they have more in common than they think. But their families - and society - think otherwise.

Eventually they will have to make a choice between doing what's expected, or following their hearts...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Packed with colour, history, atmosphere and plenty of twists and turns, this is a lush, escapist read * Sunday Express *
Before the Rains is a sizzling, eye-opening page-turner and confirms Jefferies's reputation as both a master storyteller and an acute observer of 20th century colonial history. * Lancashire Post *
Beautifully written and heart-rending -- Katie Fforde on 'The Tea Planter's Wife'
Dinah Jefferies has a remarkable gift for conjuring up another time and place with lush descriptions, full of power and intensity -- Kate Furnivall on 'The Silk Merchant's Daughter'
My ideal read - I couldn't put it down -- Santa Montefiore on 'The Tea Planter's Wife'
