Publisher's Summary

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-rule. 

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.

Daughters of India

This was a very good book to listen to, its a story told from the lives of two different young women and how their lives are so different but intertwine.
The narrator was excellent, I really felt as though each character was really speaking. The book was read in such an interesting way, I really looked forward to my long car drives to listen to it!!

Wonderful book

I was enthralled by this book. Reading it I was transported to an India of the Raj. I'm not usually a sentimental person but this book brought tears to my eyes. Don't miss it!
