Daughters of India
Publisher: Allison & Busby
‘A really evocative and fascinating read – history and humanity shine through’ The Book Trail
Isabel, born into the British Raj, and Asha, a young Hindu girl, both consider India their home. Mischance will bring them together and drive them from the bustle of Delhi to the shores of the Andaman Islands, from glittering colonial parties to the squalor and desperation of a notorious prison, and into the lives of men on opposing sides of the fight for self-rule.
In the shadow of the Second World War and the increasing heat of political violence, Isabel is torn between her love for India, the man she yearns for and loyalty to her own country. Impossible choices must be made . . .
