About the Author:

Rumer Godden was one of Britain's most distinguished authors with many justly famous and much-loved books for both adults and children to her credit, including Black Narcissus, The Greengage Summer and The Peacock Spring. She was awarded the OBE in 1993 and died in 1998.

From Library Journal:

This 1953 volume displays the familiar Godden premise of Britishers in India. In this instance, Sophie Barrington-Ward and her daughter set up house in Kashmir to live among the noble savages, whom they discover are more savage than noble after the girl is nearly beaten to death by other children and the servant attempts to poison Sophie. With characters that are "well drawn" and "the dreamy Indian landscape lovely to read about" ( LJ 5/15/53), this is for all large fiction collections.
