Three generations of an ancient family come and go in Chevathar, the village by the sea. First there is Solomon, the patriarch, manoevuring to keep the peace as caste struggles begin to encroach on the village. Then there is the story of Solomon’s sons, their fortunes rising and falling as India begins its struggle for independence. Finally, there is the story of Solomon’s grandson, making his own stand for independence. A host of characters enliven these pages – from Father Ashcroft, the English priest washed up in a forgotten corner of the empire, to Mrs Wilkins the planter’s wife who clings to the old ascendancy, and Helen, an Anglo-Indian beauty who brings about the final disintegration of the family.
