Review quote

"I couldn't put this fantastic story down; it's wonderful, so involving and naturally and effortlessly written, it was a real delight."

Paul Anthony Barber



"This is a wonderful story of a remarkable young woman's coming of age, skilfully set in wartime London. Well- researched, insightful and at times gripping as well as poignant, it also charts the rise of political forces both in Britain and India at a time when the world was on the verge of profound change. I eagerly await the second instalment of such a memorable saga."

Rodney Engen, biographer and author



"A vivid description of one young woman's life in the turbulent years before and during the Second World War, showing the vibrant Italian community and the political factions which were to tear the world apart. She also has charted the little known struggles of the India League and the fascinating characters that formed the fight for Independence. This is an accomplished work of fiction, with a solid bed-rock of historical fact."

Dr H Singh, archivist and historian
