Just out...

My latest novel Daughters of India is just out in hardback and e-book. A paperback edition will follow soon.

Set amid the turmoil of the end of British rule in India. Isabel, born into the Raj, and Asha, a young Hindu girl, are thrown together in a story which takes them from Delhi to the Andaman Islands. From glittering colonial parties to the squalor and desperation of a notorious prison and into the lives of men on opposing sides of the country’s fight for Independence.


“Brilliantly written and evocative – I simply couldn’t put it down!”
