Nush and the Stolen Emerald

A stunning new historical children’s novel from Costa Award-winning author of Asha & the Spirit Bird.

Anushka is furious. As princess of an Indian kingdom, she has watched the British East India Company take land and her family’s most divine jewel – an emerald the size of an apple.

So when her father, the Maharaja, decides to visit Queen Victoria at Buckinham Palace, Nush goes too – determined to bring back the gem that can heal her country.

A fabulous new historical direction from Costa-winning and Waterstones-shortlisted author, Jasbinder Bilan.

Themes of colonialism and identity, mixed with an action-packed royal mystery.
