At the age of 26, following her mother's death, Perdita Whitney finds herself with no options but to travel from Britain to India to join the father she barely knows. There, against the backdrop of the East India Company's attempts to move into Afghanistan, she makes her debut into society, snags a titled husband and falls desperately in love with an American writer whose views are at odds with that of the British elite.
