A story of childhood set in the hot and turbulent Indian plains. Louise sets out to India with her two daughters to stay with her estranged husband. They arrive at his farm in the vast and unstable plains of East Bengal and almost immediately the fragile relationships between the four family members start to break down. There are fierce tensions between Louise and her husband Charles which are echoed in the cracks and holes in the fabric of the house, and between Louise and Emily, her eldest daughter. These strains erupt into outright war after the death of Emily's beloved spaniel Don, a gift from her father, at the hands of her mother. This is an intense and passionate novel about growing up in India.
