Songs of Blood and Sword tells the story of a family of rich feudal landlords; the proud descendents of a warrior caste who became powerbrokers in the newly created state of Pakistan. It is an epic tale full of the romance and legend of feudal life, the glamour and licence of the international political elite and ultimately, the tragedy of four generations of a family defined by a political idealism that would destroy them.

For those genuinely intrigued by what is transpiring in Pakistan and that part of the planet, this is a most interesting and enlightening book. [A DVD can be obtained at out of Colorado of an outstanding interview she gave.]
