In 1923 the beautiful, spoiled, and bored Olivia, married to Douglas and his career in the Indian Civil Service, outrages the English and Indian communities by eloping with an Indian prince. Fifty years later, Douglas's granddaughter, armed with Olivia's letters, goes back to the heat and dust and squalor of the bazaars to find out for herself how Olivia could have been so affected by India that she turned her back on her own country.

    " I did enjoy the book. It was a little dated in the sexual freedom with few worries of disease. I think that I expected something different with more of the story and explanation of the story in 1923. The book was more focused on the parallels between 1923 & the 1970s of the step-grand daughter. There was a book called White Mischief that took place in colonial Africa that may be what I mistook this book for. "

    " This is a surprisingly enjoyable and beautifully written book. Post-colonialism is at the forefront here and it's less irritating than in other books. It's also far more tasteful and realistic than most books in this category. "

    " I read this book . . . I wrote down that I read this book . . . I have no memory of this book. "
