A quiet read for a stay-at-home with a warm blanket and purring cat on my lap day. The storyline was interesting (but felt long).

I took a long time to warm up to most of the characters. I didn't really feel I developed a deeper understanding of India, although I did feel I had a better sense of what it might have been like to be British during that time in that place.

The take-away for me was centered around the orphanage. Good-hearted people trying to help fill a desperate need in constructive ways may in fact create more problems than solutions.

The book ended on an overall good note. I appreciated that.
