The clash of cultures, the desire of the Queen to keep her country out from under the thumb of the rapacious British, her maneuverings to accomplish that, all are told from the viewpoint of a young woman raised in purdah in a poor, remote country town. Astonished at the freedom of women in Jhansi, and at the opulence of the palace, Sita makes enemies who plot her downfall as well as the Queen's. A pleasant weekend read of a long-gone age. It's a 4.
