India, 1943. In a regimental hill station, the ladies of Pankot struggle to preserve the genteel facade of British society amid the debris of a vanishing empire and World War II. This volume follows the fates of the Laytons and a retired missionary teacher, all of whom can foresee the end of the Raj - and both welcome and lament its passing.
Listen to all four titles in the Raj Quartet.
