Assam, 1925. In a tea plantation in northern India James Macdonald
has no interest in choosing a British bride. But when he takes a young Indian woman as his concubine, little can he imagine the legacy that will resonate for generations to come. So begins the story of Mary and Serafina, born of two worlds, accepted by neither. Beloved yet hidden away, their childhood is one of confusion and contradiction. It is only as the spectre of war descends and the turmoil of Indian independence heightens, that the girls must
face the truth of their parentage and begin their search for somewhere to belong.
