    Earlier this year, I read and fell in love with M.M Kaye s book The Far Pavilions Once I finished it, I started combing the internet for other books set in the time of the British Raj in India This book is the first of a series by Katharine Gordon, published in the 1970s, and it was difficult to find I eventually bought a used copy from .This book was not at all what I was expecting, but I still enjoyed it The back of the book describes the plot as the story of Bianca an Irish girl and Sher Khan and Indian prince and the difficulties their love faces during the time of the Sepoy Mutiny That really only describes the first 150 pages or so of this book To me, the story was about three women European Bianca, her Indian step daughter Sara, and her adopted half caste daughter Muna These three women, despite the fact that they are in the same family, all have extremely different experiences in India because of their different backgrounds Personally, I found Muna s story to be the most interesting The book is split into two sections, the first set in 1857, and the second set in 1868 Throughout the story, Gordon does an excellent job of maintaining a sense of threat and menace Although it sometimes read a bit like the plot of a soap opera, I thought this book had characters with real depth and emotion.I enjoyed reading this, but I did miss the political intrigue and the wealth of detail about Indian culture that is present in Kaye s The Far Pavilions.

    rereading this book trying to find good books to read with a class about India next term.Well, I won t use this with a class It was a good read, although one of the heroines the tale is sort of in two parts drove me nuts This being said, I suppose as a 16 year old in the 1860 s we can t expect too much Hard to tell if my copy is complete as the book ends at the bottom of the page but all the stories are resolved, so it s not disturbing.
