Tusker and Lily Smalley stayed on in India. Given the chance to return 'home' when Tusker, once a Colonel in the British Army, retired, they chose instead to remain in the small hill town of Pangkot, with its eccentric inhabitants and archaic rituals left over from the days of the Empire. Only the tyranny of their landlady, the imposing Mrs Bhoolabhoy, threatens to upset the quiet rhythm of their days.

    " Just wasn't interested in the story I'm afraid. I couldn't see the funny side and it just stank of the 1970s, we are rulers of the world mentality - so gave up! "

    " This was really quite good. There are long monologues in the dialogue, which are a little unrealistic, but the story moves in and out of the lives of all the characters in a really skillful, natural way. It is very entertaining. You won't regret picking it up - I avoided it for a long time because the back cover made it look like a sad story, but it isn't at all. "
