Read full description of the books:
O Palácio de Espelho narra os passos de um menino órfão e pobre, Rajkumar, supreendido em meio à invasão britânica na Birmânia, em 1885. Às vésperas da expulsão da família real birmanesa pelos soldados, o menino se descobre apaixonado por uma bela pajem da rainha. Ela segue seus senhores para o exílio, mas ele não a esquece. Anos depois dono de um próspero empreendimento madeireiro, Rajumar parte para a Índia em busca da amada.
Ao longo do livro, desenrola-se a trajetória de três famílias, cujos destinos se entrelaçam. A vida dessas personagens ilumina os conflitos que transformam e levam Birmânia, Índia e Malásia à modernidade. Uma saga familiar que nos transporta a culturas distantes e nos transforma em testemunhas do fim da monarquia birmanesa e da ascensão e queda do império britânico. Uma fascinante história de amor e guerra.
