    1. 4.5 stars. Loved it and a must for MM Kaye junkies looking for another India fix."Our sepoys are trained to behave like English soldiers, but the blood of India runs through their veins, and the history of past centuries shapes their actions when feelings run high. Fools forget that."Yes, they do. Charlotte Scott is summoned to join her parents in India with the express purpose of putting her on the marriage market. A bit on the mousy side, Charlotte is very different from her mother (a renowned [...]


    2. So the basic storyline of this is five stars, reminiscent of The Far Pavilions. But there was a lot here that disturbed me and ultimately I couldn't enjoy this as I would have liked to for these reasons.It started as five stars. Yes! Just what I'm looking for. Good characterization, good plot etc. It's going to be a forever favorite. Not so fast.The soul satisfying character connections degenerates into physical lust very shortly and when this happens it seems like everything else is forgotten, [...]



    3. As Victoria ascends the throne in England, so another young woman is also preparing for a big change in her life. Raised by a spinster aunt, Charlotte is thrilled to finally be summoned by her parents to join them in India. Expecting a loving reunion, she instead finds a stern father with no time for a daughter and a glamorous mother interested only in appearances and parties. Educated and inexperienced, Charlotte finds herself ridiculed by the other young women, whose only aims in life are pret [...]


    4. Nor look thee ‘ere beyond this kingdomBeyond all frontiers of love an pain.For thine eyes will tire and see no moreThe truth. It will blind thee.AnonWhat a splendid and magnificent book written by Emma Drummond.This is the story of Charlotte Scott and Richard Lingarde. Charlotte returned to India in 1837 after her childhood spent in England. She is fascinated by the enchanting charm of Richard, an engineer of the British army. Charlotte and Richard marriage suffers some turmoil periods putting [...]


    5. According to the many amazing and hilarious reviewers I follow on GR, gigantic epic romances where the hero and heroine spend less than 1/3 of their time in each other's presence was a biiiiiiiig thing in the '80s, but this is my first one.First, the good:Drummond clearly has a good handle on military life, British history, and history of colonialism. She also subverts or inverts many common tropes, including the "heroes are defined by what they do, heroines are defined by what they endure," and [...]


    6. I wavered between a three and four stars for this one. A powerful and moving finale, as well as vivid descriptions of Britain's disastrous first Afghan war, earned this its fourth star.Set in India and Afghanistan in the early days of Queen Victoria's reign (1938-1842), Beyond All Frontiers tells the story of a young and very innocent girl, Charlotte Scott, who comes to India to meet her barely remembered parents--and to be married off.Charlotte Scott's terrible insecurities and the flush of her [...]




    7. Absolutely first rate historical fiction. Set in India and Afghanistan during the mid 1800's. My favorite of Emma Drummond/Elizabeth Darrell's books.


    8. With M.M Kaye as my benchmark for all Pre-Partition British Raj historical fiction and it being one of my most favorite sub-genres, I had high expectations and anticipation for this book. The first half of it had me convinced that I'd hit gold and this book was almost as good as Kaye's work, but once the Afghanistan part comes into play, the story starts doddering and somehow quite doesn't recover its previous high tenor. The characters are well crafted, perfectly fit the storyline and so is the [...]


    9. I read this in 3 days, one of those being New Years Day where I spent all hours fully absorbed. Although Beyond All Frontiers is a historical novel, it is a timeless story of the virtues and faults, loves and misunderstandings of men and women. Judging from the book cover, it has been marketed as a romance. If this is a romance novel, then I guess I'm a fan of the genre. Some of my own experience of newlywed problems was told in this tale. I was enlightened by the view into the female side of th [...]
