Daughters of India
E-book, E-Book (USA), Paperback
Isabel, born into the British Raj, and Asha, a young Hindu girl, both consider India their home. Through mischance and accident their stories intersect and circumstances will bring them from the bustling city 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-government.
As the shadow of the Second World War falls across India, Isabel, caught up in growing political violence, has to make impossible choices – fighting for her love for India, for the man she yearns for, and for her childhood Indian friend, in the face of loyalty to her own country.
What The Critics Said
‘This brilliantly written and evocative novel about love and friendship across a cultural divide, instantly swept me into an India struggling for self rule as WW2 drew ever nearer. I simply couldn't put it down.’
Trisha Ashley, author of The Little Teashop of Lost and Found
