The Mystery of the Rose: The Return of the Prince

“A mesmerizing tale of romance from India under the British rule, depicted with powerful characters and fascinating backdrop of the rise of the Indian independence movement; the fall of the British Raj, leading up to the rebirth of a nation. A perfect book for adaptation into a feature movie production.”

--Madhumati—East Indian Film Actress/Dancer

“Reading the book, The Mystery of the Rose is like watching a film—the story grips you; the characters become alive and the images burn in your memory forever . . .”

--Marcia Carroll--Former Core Reporter to President Lyndon B. Johnson, White House


“Between the pages of Mystery of the Rose is the love story of Pearly Ruby Boone, woven together with the fate of a nation under British rule. Drawing from historical contexts, the novel paints a perfect picture of India circa 1880 all the way to the 1940s as it explores the life of a British family caught up in the political intrigue and turmoil of the era. This, coupled with vibrant illustrations and sprinkled with several beautiful verses of poetry, makes the novel a perfect harmony of the physical and the spiritual, creating a true marvel of magical realism.”

--Maricel Alcantara--Author Solutions--A Penguin Company


“Indeed a Masterpiece! A book you can’t put down. I looked at the artwork of Sukh Khokhar on Google with respect to this book and it is spectacular!”

"I have previewed the EBook Dark Mystery, I’m a Demon I’m a Ghost written by author Sukh D. H. Khokhar. The poetry is very intriguing and heightens the mystery surrounding what is being said. Skilfully composed poetry knits together what is being depicted in a mysterious manner and yet contains an important message. I simply loved the artwork as it is the work of a talented specially gifted artist who puts together the images shown with the help of a higher power. This is an amazing EBook!"
