Book Description

Mar 1988 Oxford paperbacks - Oxford letters & memoirs
This book includes an eye-witness account of the siege of Delhi, in 1857, a most crucial encounter of the Indian Mutiny, where the author was "the only lady" present and during which she gave birth to a son. Her memoirs, which are accompanied by some of the photographs of India taken by the Tytlers in 1858, were never published in full during her life. The author was born into an army family in India. She traces her development from childhood to marriage in India and England, recounting the experiences which helped mould her personality. This is a personal story of one woman's life as well as illustrating the attitudes and assumptions of the British in India during the 19th century.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you have read other books about this period in Indian history then you simply must read this one also. An excellent book which gives a personal window into the life and suffering of ordinary British people living in India in the mid 1850's. Then read David Saul's book about this period - Saul will give you the overall history of the events while An Englishwoman in India will give you a personal account. Both wonderful books.
