Indian Summer

book cover image Victoria and Abdul

A 'romance' good enough to bring actor Judi Dench out of retirement is now part of our collection. Read the true story behind the movie.

In the twilight years of her reign, Queen Victoria met tall and handsome Abdul Karim, a humble servant from Agra waiting tables at her Golden Jubilee. Within a year, Abdul became a powerful figure at court, the Queen's teacher, her counsel on Urdu and Indian affairs, and a friend close to her heart.

Now a major motion picture.
