AMAH AND THE SILK-WINGED PIGEONS is a literary, historical novel that draws on the lost histories of the women descended from African slaves who resisted English rule during the 1857 uprising in Lucknow, India. The book is about the event that triggered Queen Victoria’s reign in India for almost a century, and illuminates new and important female perspectives on what has been called India’s first war of independence.
