In a rather sad, and sometimes dark narrative, Bronwyn Morgan Sengupta takes the reader into her heart and mind as she unravels the tragic story of her life. She is a promising young woman, pampered, spoiled, and barely out of her teens, when she meets and falls in love with Ronobir, a sophisticated and elegant man like no one she has never known. After a whirlwind courtship and wedding they travel to Calcutta where he has a good job as well as a family. Bronwyn, born and raised in the U.S., has Anglo-Indian roots and looks forward to seeing for herself the land she has heard her father speak of with much love and affection. The young couple has every intention of being loyal and faithful to each other. However neither of them anticipates the problems they will face, like Ronobir’s strong matriarchal ties, domineering personality and family responsibilities.
