The Forest Woman

by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee
£8.99   paperback  Hesperus Press Ltd (2011)

The Forest Woman by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee Abandoned by his fellow travellers on a tiger-ridden shore in eastern Bengal, the narrator stumbles across a strange, beautiful woman, Kapalkundala. But she has been enslaved by a priest - who plans to sacrifice them both in an esoteric rite. The only way for Kapalkundala and the narrator to escape, is by marrying each other and travelling on to town in disguise.
 
As soon as they reach the road, however, they encounter a second woman - laden with jewels and as beguiling, to the narrator, as the first. Apparently a Muslim aristocrat from the court of Emperor Akbar, she appears to know more about the narrator than she should.
