really liked it
bookshelves: historical, india

Magnificent series. If you're 'into' the period, and liked Forster's 'Passage to India' these are an absolute must.
Get them all and wallow in the story, the locations, and the prose. End up with 'Staying on', which is the shortest and most poignant. (If possible, get the film as well...Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard doing an extraordinary job with the book, and providing a wonderful coda to their respective careers).
