First published in England in 1949, this is the diary of an English novelist during the heyday of the Raj.
"Lady Lawrence was better known as Rosamond Napier, a British novelist who had several popular titles to her credit before marrying and relocating to the wilds of India, complete with snakes, panthers, travel by horseback, and sleeping in jungles. Her remembrances of the lives of the Indians and the British colonists during the waning days of the Raj (the book spans 1914 -- 26) can be likened to an Indian version of Out of Africa. Napier presents this portrait of a time and place uniquely from a woman's point of view". -- Library Journal
"Rosamond Lawrence's account of her time in India stands out among the hundreds of memoirs of the Raj for its wit, intelligence, and understanding. She writes with a clarity and elegance that help to bring that vanished world alive". -- Margaret MacMillan, author of Women of the Raj
