"The Flower of Forgiveness" is a 1894 collection of short stories by Flora Annie Steel. Flora Annie Steel (1847 - 1929) was an English writer who notably lived in British India for 22 years and is best remembered for her books set or related to the sub-continent. Like most of her work, these tales are set in colonial India and offer a unique insight into what life was like at that time. "The Flower of Forgiveness" is highly recommended for those with an interest in India's history and will not disappoint those who have read and enjoyed other works by this author. Contents include: "The Flower of Forgiveness", "Harvest", "For the Faith", "The Bhut-Baby", "Râmchunderji", "Heera Nund", "Feroza", "In the House of a Coppersmith", "Faizullah", "The Footstep of Death", "Habitual Criminals", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. Other works by this author include: "Tales of the Punjab" (1894) and "The Potter's Thumb" (1894). It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
