This book had so much potential - an intelligent and brave 19th century heroine who accompanies her father to India and uncovers a mystery in her new home, but basically the plot was very meager. The only thing that made Jennifer interesting was her ability to keep a secret and her determination to learn Hindustani, unlike many English women of her class who expected servants to make all the effort. Jennifer's father, Colonel Metcalfe, is condescending, and her love interest, Charles Bracken, pretends he is only interested in brotherly relationship, which is confusing and annoying.
