    Summary of the Book

    Set in the 1790s in India, this story begins against the backdrop of the third Anglo-Mysore War between the Kingdom of Mysore and the East India Company. The British are racing towards another pinnacle. After having seized the Malabar Coast, they are lurching anxiously towards Bangalore, and Tipu Sultan is fighting a fierce battle. In this time of conspiracies and wars, the beautiful Uma Brooke, an Englishman’s daughter in the guard of a Mysore Maharaja, is caught in an inner conflict of her own. The Maharaja wants her to marry Captain Ashton Trevelyan of the British army. But Uma does not want to disappoint her kind guardian yet. She is disturbed by the circumstances of her birth and is vocal about her love for India, and hence, she cannot think of a future with Ashton. On the other hand, Captain Trevelyan is compelled to yield to this marriage for political reasons. Discover what happens further in the gripping tale of The Mute Anklet.

    The Mute Anklet sets a new rhythm in historic mystery romance fiction

    Is it a love story with a mystery woven in or is it a mystery novel with a strong romance flowing through it?
    I like to think of it as a mystery wrapped in a romance. If you have read 'The Mute Anklet' by Radhika Nathan, you will know what I mean.

    Doesnt the title point to a mystery? Why would an anklet be mute? An interesting title, isn't it? And the story that follows doesn't let us down. It has a very surprising and pulse racing beginning.. the mysterious stranger at the smithy, foll...

    The mumurs of the "mute" anklet

    The author keeps the reader engaged with vivid descriptions and interesting facts from history.

    I must say I disliked the heroine Uma from the very beginning, but was close to being in love with the hero Ashton. Proof of strong characterization I guess.

    Captivating!

    "The anklet was thick,stiff and made of iron..." the very first words of this novel is a promise for an intriguing story.
    The Mute anklet is a wonderful book that takes you back to the times before the British Raj. Beautiful descriptions, complex characters and an action packed storyline , this Book is the full package.
    From the landscapes to the food, South India is depicted beautifully!
    Great read!

    Good read...

    From the very start, we have a suspenseful novel and rather deliciously the suspense is kept till the very end. The author - Radhika - has an interesting style which captures a lot of the flavour of those times and yet keeps the reader on edge - wondering where the story will take him or her. Without doubt, the author's imagination takes us to those forts, the battle field and equally to the lovely conversations between the important characters in the plot. Uma, the heroine, is of course such...
