It is 1918 in India, and teenage Rosalind is more at home in the bazaars than at the British country club where her parents think she should spend her days. The novel chronicles her growing awareness of the harsh living conditions of most ordinary Indians and her growing sympathy for the nonviolent independence movement that Gandhi is beginning to organize. The themes are serious, but there is also humor and romance as Rosalind finds her own voice and her own independence.
