Summary
"For its British population, the India that swelters in the late spring of 1857 is a place of amateur theatricals, horseracing and flirtations under the aegis of the powerful East India Company. Not long arrived in this exotic colony is pretty Sophie Hardcastle, newly married but already disillusioned enough with her soldier husband to have fallen under the spell of a dashing and mysterious lieutenant, Bruce Farquhar. But a brutal awakening lies in store for the complacent British: one May night, after thirty years of abuse, the East India Company's native soldiers rise against their British officers. Thus begins the most savage episode in our imperial history." --DUST JACKET
Summary
* A devastating portrait of a love affair played out at the height of one of the most violent episodes in British colonial history
