Amy Sparks Looking for a historic romance/suspense/thriller written by an English or American female writer, possibly in the 80's. I think the story was set in Pakistan or Afghanistan and involves a young man who falls in love with a Muslim woman. It's not about religion or sex, more about forbidden love and the desire to be with someone you are in love with against all odds. I think either the man or the woman was an orphan as a child and his/her father was a Russian explorer. Her sister gets married to a Pakistan prince, I think but he dies and her sister must throw herself on the funeral pyre. It was a really good book that I didn't finish because I gave it to someone to read and never got it back. I think the cover was orange and pink.
