India, 1943: In a regimental hill station, the ladies of Pankot struggle to preserve the genteel façade of British society amid the debris of a vanishing empire and World War II. A retired missionary, Barbara Batchelor, bears witness to the connections between many human dramas; the love between Daphne Manner and Hari Kumar; the desperate grief an old teacher feels for an India she cannot rescue; and the cruelty of Captain Ronald Merrick, Susan Layton's future husband.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Lara | 12/20/2013

    " It isn't as eventful as the first two in the series (essentially it goes over the events that have already taken place but from different points of view) but the characters are fascinating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Sonal Panse | 12/5/2013

    " Nice, but a bit plodding and over-written. I couldn't summon up the same level of interest as the author in Lady Manners (she might be an important character in the other book, but entirely irrelevant here). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ulla | 10/5/2013

    " First read this in the 1980's, after the TV series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Wendy Roberts | 8/26/2013

    " Couldn't put this book down...it hearkens back to the first book in the series a bit more...heart-breaking and intense. "
