It is the searing month of June. The rebellion against the British has just begun and awash is up in flames. Hindus and Muslims have joined hands to overthrow the foreign rulers and set India free. Some Indian rulers have started to enter into alliances to fight the firangis while others have thrown in their lot with the foreigners. Amid all this, riyaz Khan, a young solider from the army of the Raja of Ahmedabad, saves a group of Britishers from fellow 'mutineers' And escorts them to the safety of Lucknow. In this group is Alice, who falls in love with riyaz and eventually becomes an Informer for the rebels. The break of dawn published in Urdu under the title aghaaz-e-sah is a thrilling page-turner and a reminder of a time when Indians of all Classes and creeds came together to fight for the honour and freedom of their homeland.
