    Description

    In this evocative tale of life in India between the wars, friendships will be tested and loyalties torn. But can love win the day?

    In Scotland in the aftermath of the First World War, nurse Esmie McBride meets handsome Captain Tom Lomax at her best friend Lydia’s home. Esmie is at first concerned for Tom’s shell shock, then captivated by his charm, but it’s effervescent Lydia he marries, and the pair begin a new adventure together in India. 

    When marriage to Tom’s doctor friend Harold offers Esmie the chance to work in India, the two sets of newlyweds find themselves living wildly different lives on the subcontinent. Esmie, heartbroken but resolved, is nursing at a mission hospital on the North West Frontier. Lydia, meanwhile, is the glamorous mistress of the Raj Hotel, where Tom hopes his sociable new wife will dazzle international guests. 

    As Esmie struggles with her true feelings for Tom and the daily dangers of her work, Lydia realises the Raj is not the centre of high society she had dreamed of. And when crisis strikes both couples, Esmie faces a shattering choice: should she stay the constant friend she’s always been, or risk everything and follow her heart?

    Cliche upon cliche upon cliche

    I don’t think Trotter missed a single cliche in terms of plot, characters or language. No insight into the cultures of the region, not even the British raj at that time.

    Elizabeth Knowelden’s reading was fair at best. She never quite seemed to find a way to distinguish some of the characters by voice. Her accents were pretty bad.

    I’m not sure what I spent (too much), but I wish I hadn’t.

    If you like predictable romance...

    with no vulgarity, here you go. I don't mind the narrator's voices for the most part, but the lead guy sounded like he he had been smoking some really good weed. I had to up the speed to 1.25 to tolerate it. Gave up part way through and just istened to the end where, sure enough, everything worked out exactly as one could have predicted after the first chapter.

    Beautifully Read

    Elizabeth Knowelden takes an otherwise standard romance and turns it into something much better. This is a difficult review in that all the secondary characters are flashes of sharply drawn, complex individuals while the four main characters seem out central casting. The story is fine for a romance but considering its length I was hoping for more originality. If you are looking for something that won’t challenge you, brilliantly read this will be great.
