DOWNLOAD Ð Zemindar Itt journeys to the East to the fabled fiefdom of the Zemindar Guardian of the Eart. I yield DNF somewhere around Part 2pg 200 I was in the mood for a doorstopper historical epic but this is not the droid I m looking for Zemindar contains very vivid well crafted visuals of mid Victorian India Unfortunately that s ALL it contains The plot or what little emerges is slow lumbering meanders aimlessly The characters are little better than talking heads mouthpieces for epic blocks of As You Know Bob history lessons And the heroine barf Let s bash her for a bit hmLaura is a passive non entity who yammers about how women are awesome too confined by convention before proceeding to uphold conform to every single social reuirement of a dreary Paid Companion simply because Duh These are rules that must be adhered to what a fascinating story that makes D Not She also abases herself to a childish chit for no good reason except to further the plot device of her travels all the while she whinges about wanting to see the real India outside the colonial influence Yet she STILL does nothing to buck convention god forbid further her own adventures because Yes indeed she s a passive non entity Her transition out of love with Charles is entirely unconvincing as a plot twist one page she s mad for him the next she isn t because The author makes it so solely for the transparent foreshadowing of her new passion for Erskine But in the meantime continually obsessing about social propriety makes for a really boring story as I ve ranted about so many times before IMHO the author would ve been better off writing a nonfiction study of the Sepoy Rebellion her family s experiences therein Wedging these boring non characters into the mess just ain t worth it My lone recommendation is for fans of Sharon Kay Penman This feels a lot like SKP s style but in Victorian India instead of medieval England

DOWNLOAD Ð Zemindar A backdrop of exotic splendor and stirring deeds as a young Englishwoman Laura Hew. Clocking in at a small fonted 798 pages reading Zemindar is not for the faint of heart but well worth the journeyVery similar in scope to MM Kaye s Shadow of the Moon Zemindar focuses on the years 1856 1857 a very pivotal time period for the British Raj in India Tensions misunderstandings mistakes atrocities and harsh realities all simmer beneath the backdrop of the exotic Indian landscape Primarily a historical romance with most of the emphasis on historical the story of Laura Hewitt and Oliver Erskine is a beautiful love story beautifully told by an author who knows how to write and write wellThe slow descriptive pace of the novel may put off some readers who want action and less contemplation you have been duly warned However I uite enjoyed the leisured buildup the absence of the hero for a good period of time and the long long days described during the seige of Lucknow In fact I wonder if it was Fitzgerald s implicit intention to write it that way so that the reader could dimly imagine for themselves Laura s own journey during those dark months Well it worked for me and I m only sorry I ve had this gem in my TBR pile for much too longZemindar is truely a fine representation of a historical romance and a must read for any reader who enjoys in depth characterization and plot loads of historical data a thinking woman s romance and a thoughtful read
