Customer Review

on April 28, 2003
Dalrymple has researched and written a masterpiece of Anglo-Indian history.
This is a gripping story of love and multi-cultural respect born at the end of that era. The coming of Wellesley to India and the changing attitudes toward race and religion destroyed what multi-cultural understanding existed. The demise of that era precipitates the cultural mistrust and misunderstanding of Forster's "A Passage to India".
Kirkpatrick leads a tragic life but experiences true love and family devotion before his demise. Khair un-Nissa leads and even sadder existence because she must survive his death and the departure of their two children to England.
Many lessons for modern life from this beautifully-written and well-researched book. Like everything he has written, this book exceeds even high expectations.
