Ceylon, 1803. In the royal city of Kandy, a daughter is born to the king's elephant keeper-an esteemed position in the court reserved only for males. To ensure the line of succession, Phera's parents raise her as a boy. As she bonds with her elephant companion, Siddhi, Phera grows into a confident, fiercely independent woman torn between the expectations of her family and her desire to live life on her own terms. Only when British colonists invade is she allowed to live her true identity, but when the conquerors commit unspeakable violence against her people, Phera must add survival to the list of freedoms for which she's willing to fight. Possessed by thoughts of revenge yet drawn into an unexpected romance with a kindly British physician, the elephant keeper's daughter faces a choice: Love or hatred? Forgiveness or retribution?
