'The compelling story of Joan Falkiner, who married Nawab of Palanpur and then vanished into the shadows of history... a tale filled with diamond rings, finishing schools, dhirzies on the back verandah, thirteen gun salutes and the snobberies of Royal India. For where in the world but India would a 24-year-old lass from Yarra marry a 50-year-old Muslim ruler of a Hindu state when World War II was about to break out?’
