In this atmospheric, passionate and poignant account of a clash of cultures, caste and creed, divided family loyalties, wealthy heart-throbs and the power of love, the story is told through three women whose lives entwine.
Hermie - a headstrong and bewitching Anglo-Indian - turns her back on the Anglo-Indian (mixed-heritage) community and reinvents herself only to find that a dark secret threatens to send her life spiraling out of control and cost her everything.
Sharp-witted Edith, exiled in India from her native Germany by Nazi persecution, faces stark choices in a future very different from that she envisaged.
Enchanting Kay, separated by more than a generation from Hermie and Edith, is haunted by a family mystery and risks her prospects in London to pursue a quest for roots in India where fate hurtles her in an unexpected direction. Can they confront the storms or are their dreams destined to shatter?
A saga set in exotic India. An American Baptist missionary couple whose unknowing ties to one of the women resonate to the present day. The glamour of the Maharajahs; the perils of personal re-invention; the quest for roots.
