A thoroughly enjoyable read,

This review is from: The Secret Children (Kindle Edition)
Well written, the descriptions of life in colonial India for children born into a mixed race family are enthralling. Attitudes of the British ruling class to indigenous people of the continent were disgraceful and yet were universally accepted at the time.
One couldn't help but feel for the plight of the children and the sad demise of the mother who fades into obscurity as the story unfolds.
I admired the tenacity of each of the sisters who dealt with their lot in life in different ways as befits differing characters.
This is an amazing book more so because it is mostly a true story. I loved all the characters, flaws and all. They are humans with hopes and dreams just like we all do
