"The Far Pavilions" is the story of an English man - Ashton Pelham-Martyn - brought up as a Hindu. It is the story of his passionate, but dangerous love for Juli, an Indian princess. It is the story of divided loyalties, of friendship that endures till death, of high adventure and of the clash between East and West. To the burning plains and snow-capped mountains of this great, humming continent, M.M. Kaye brings her exceptional gifts of storytelling and meticulous historical accuracy, plus her insight into the human heart.

Sprawling epic, authentic feel, memorable characters; ultra romantic. I just found the writing itself a bit pedestrian though. I also recommend seeing the 1984 HBO miniseries available on DVD! Terrific locations, scenery, excellent cast (Amy Irving is stunning)
