Book Description
In January 1836, two sisters, Eleanor and Harriet, set sail for india, leaving their home in England to accompany their brother Henry on his posting as Governor-General. After four months at sea, their ship docks in the Bay of Bengal and the figures disembark to begin their new lives in the colonial society of Calcutta. Told through the engaging voice of Eleanor, one last look takes the reader to the heart of nineteenth-century india. constantly surrounded by an entourage of servants and aides, overwhelmed by suffocating heat and her own physical vulnerability. Eleanor begins to realize that nothing is as it seems. Will her brother`s political ambitions lead them inexorably to disaster? Is her sister`s sanity under threat? As the fragile boundaries begin to dissolve, and desire and horror overcome her it, is clear that Eleanor`s vision if this land and herself will be irrevocably transformed.
