Fascinating Story about a largely unknown part of the British Empire.
on 26 March 2013
A good story based on Burma and India in the 1920's and opening up a part of India which has largely been forgotten. For the best part of a century the Kolar Gold Fields, in South India, produced a great deal of wealth and was a very pleasant place to live for the British and Anglo-Indian communities. Fiona McIntosh is unashamedly visiting her family roots and builds round this a fascinating story of love and adventure, hurt and sadness. with a unique insight into the life and times of some very interesting people. Anyone who has had experience of KGF (as it is commonly known), or India, will be gripped by it, and those who haven't will find an unknown world opening up to them
