The Mystery of the Rose The Return of the PrinceWitness the rebirth of India in an unforgettable love story of Pearly Ruby Princessa, spun around the fascinating background of the Coronation of King Edward V11 in 1902, his spectacular State Durbar and the reign of maharajas, nawabs, and aristocrats in the Indian princely states. Baby Pearly was born towards the turn of 19th century. She arrived precisely after the stroke of midnight under the full moon. The time of her birth was as ominous for her English born mother and aunt residing in India as it was for the British Empire. The birth of Pearly symbolized many things to many people, British and Indian, but most importantly it symbolized change ? a beginning and an end. For her native Indian parents, her birth marked the much hoped for new beginning of Swatantra, the self-rule for the land of India. For her British counterpart, it marked the final chapter ? the end of the British raj. It is a tale of two nations entering an era of new beginnings, coinciding with the story of Princessa. The story is woven with powerful imagery and amazing riddles. It is a tale of mystery, intrigue and obsession exploring the magical connection between the physical and the metaphysical; matter and spirit; good and evil; demon and divine and ultimately, the undeniably compelling connection between the power of forgiveness and the gift of deliverance- the deliverance from the cycle of life and death, leading to the state of NIRVANAƒthe ultimate peace.
