In a crumbling Calcutta mansion, with faded frescos and a
jasmine-covered garden, the Lemarchant family live, clinging to the
fringes of respectability: neither Indian nor English, they are
accepted by no one and exploited by all.After only a day in India,
Stephen Bright meets Rosa Lemarchant. In an ill-fitting dress once
belonging to her sister, she is awkward and shy, and couldn't be
more different from the stories he has heard of fast 'Eurasian'
girls. Ignorant of Calcutta's strict codes of conformity, he falls
in love with Rosa and becomes enchanted by the building in which
she lives, determined to uncover its secrets.Mystery pervades this
story of a memory-haunted house in old Calcutta, as secret as a
sundial in a ruined garden.
