Summary
"When the British Empire sets its sights on India in the mid-nineteenth century, it expects a quick and easy conquest ... But when they arrive in the Kingdom of Jhansi, the British army is met with a surprising challenge. Instead of surrendering, Queen Lakshmi raises two armies--one male and one female--and rides into battle, determined to protect her country and her people. Although her soldiers may not appear at first to be formidable against superior British weaponry and training, Lakshmi refuses to back down from the empire determined to take away the land she loves"--
Summary
Refusing to surrender to the British Empire, Rani Lakshmibai, ruler of India's Jhansi State, defends her realm with not one but two armies -- one comprised entirely of men, the other, all-female. Narrated by Sita, Rani's trusted bodyguard, Rebel Queen vividly depicts the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and introduces readers to a strong, courageous ruler who fought and died for her country. -- Description by Gillian Speace
