Lakshmi Persaud

Lakshmi Persaud is the highly acclaimed author of 'Daughters of Empire', 'Raise the Lanterns High', 'For the Love of my Name', 'Sastra' & 'Butterfly in the Wind'. She was born in Trinidad in the Caribbean, of Indian descent. Her novels explore many ideas using a combination of high drama, romance and gentle humour. Though her work is usually set in the Caribbean, her themes appeal to all.

*OUT SOON!* 'Daughters of Empire' is Lakshmi Persaud's latest novel. It is a sweeping family saga, across generations and continents, a moving portrayal of migration and the challenges it presents. This is unlike any other novel of the Asian experience in Britain.
