Press Release updated: Sep 8, 2020 06:00 EDT

Cynthia Marlowe has completed her new book “SOLD!”: a gripping tale of how a woman of a royal family in India is wrongly sold into slavery in the American colonies.

Marlowe writes, “Mary Dove, or Malaga Moll as she is known amongst historians, has been a popular subject of folklore and mystery for decades. Her true story has never been revealed until now.”

Published by Newman Springs Publishing, SOLD! takes you from the harem of the royal palace of Koch Behar, India in the year 1682, through an incredible journey of Maharani Narayan, who became known as Mary Dove, as she is forced to transform from royalty to slave. Then in an epic twist of fate where the Royal Narayan family must erase a bloodstain to preserve their kingdom, they come to the aid of their long lost family member and to the courtrooms of Craven County, North Carolina where they prove that Mary Dove was a free subject of the maharajas of Koch Behar, India, and therefore could not have been rightfully sold as a slave in the British colonies.

This true story documents the lives of three generations and their journey through slavery from a yet unexplored perspective. SOLD! shows how a deep and enduring love can be found in unexpected places, the violence of jealousy and slavery, the pain of human possession, and the depth of faith and compassion. 

It reveals the unique turmoil of a proud woman who is sold, but through dignity, strength, and the conviction of her beliefs is never truly a slave, and how she taught her son and granddaughter the spirit of faith, the strength of hope and belief in the invincible bonds that tie a family together.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping work can purchaseSOLD!” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
