A family story in the vein of Penelope Lively following an English couple ‘coming home’ from India in 1944, attempting to make their way in a changed Britain.
Spring, 1947. In a few months’ time the British flag will be lowered all over India, and with Independence thousands of those who made their lives there – as planters, civil servants, or in the Indian army – will be returning to England. Among those coming home, as everyone speaks of it, are Will and Flo Sutherland, who fell in love at the end of the war. India has been the defining experience of their lives: how will they make a new life now? Sue Gee’s new novel is filled with pathos and humour, beautifully evoking an all-but vanished world.
