The incredible true story of Lady Hester Stanhope, who rejected London society in the early 1800s to travel to the Middle East. She became embroiled in espionage and romance, and played a key role in stifling Napoleon's advances towards India. A controversial figure in her time, Hester's story combines passion and adventure in a tale of remarkable bravery from one of the most pioneering women in history.
