A beautifully written novel which, though ultimately a story of love, is never self regarding. Initially the scene setting in the Assam region of India is heart warming and inviting but underneath there are enough dark clouds to cause a tempest. The drawing of the different characters and personalities will have any sensitive reader spitting venom. I shouted criticism of some of the offenders out loud and took no prisoners in wishing Clarrie and her good and proper friends so much warmth and success. Sadly the human race was found severely wanting with the behaviour of the offending forces inviting their most unpleasant removal from society. JMT draws the respective attitudes of the so called working classes and their supposed betters with an insightful and cruel reality, reminding us that there is good and bad in all stratas of people with the kindliness and the despicable shared out randomly. The race element that is never far from the surface is, as ever, distasteful to good thinking people and a reminder of how two World Wars brought about such a change in attitudes while failing to cleanse the human race of its natural evil. This book will appeal to all who are interested in human behaviour before the first World War and the terrible consequences of young men-and horses- being dragged off to fight a war prompted by a power crazed and self obsessed tyrant.

** Minor Spoilers**

I found this book really disappointing, despite all the reviews. The characters were really flat, and I never really grew to like any of them. The romance itself was just silly and unbelievable (girl meets boy, hates him, but internally longs for him even though they only met once for like 10 minutes...). The way the sister acted in the second half was so out of the blue with no development of her character beforehand. I was also looking forward to reading about the India tea plantations or early 20th century English, but the descriptions were so stale and cliche. The Indian characters were like cutouts from an old children's book -- flat and entirely predictable, with stereotypical personalities and no real depth. It was just overall really disappointing.

I give it two points because I did eventually finish it, but I won't be reading any more of the series.

Pure escapism! really enjoyed this story of contrasts set in exotic India and the industrial north east England. It reminded me of Catherine Cookson's novels with a strong feisty heroine and a dark dashing hero. I wanted to clap at the end and cant wait to read the sequel.
