The Overnight Palace

The Overnight Palace

Author(s): Janet Marie Sola

Location(s): Rajasthan

Genre(s): Fiction

Era(s): Modern



Set in India, “The Overnight Palace is a gorgeous and sensual novel, one that readers of all kinds are sure to find enchanting,” says San Francisco Book Review. In exotic Rajasthan, India, bookish Elena seeks the romance and transcendence that have been missing from her life in San Francisco. Her quest leads her through the maze of another culture, populated by beckoning goddesses, the outrageous and sometimes tragic people she meets along the way, and a daring lover. It’s a captivating addition to the growing genre of books such as Eat, Pray, Love that explore midlife travel, romance, and transformation.
