All hopes are on beautiful Maisy to restore their good fortune. But Maisy's more at home in the city's forbidden alleyways, eating bazaar food and speaking Bengali with Pushpa, than dancing in glittering ballrooms with potential husbands.
Then one day Maisy's tutor falls ill. His son stands in. Poetic, handsome and ambitious for an independent India, Sunil Banerjee promises Maisy the world. So begins a love affair that will cast her future, for better and for worse. Just as the Second World War strikes and the empire begins to crumble....
This is the other side of British India. A dizzying, scandalous, dangerous world where race, class and gender divide and rule.

Excellent story , very real and well read
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. I particularly liked the alternative narrators which made the book that much more real. Well researched and well written - have nothing negative to say about it.
