As the Kaisar-i-Hind weighs anchor for Bombay in the autumn
of 1928, its passengers ponder their fate in a distant land.
They are part of the "Fishing Fleet" -- the name given to
the legions of Englishwomen who sail to India each year in
search of husbands, heedless of the life that awaits them.
The inexperienced chaperone Viva Holloway has been entrusted
to watch over three unsettling charges.
There's Rose, as beautiful as she is naÔve, who plans to
marry a cavalry officer she has met a mere handful of times.
Her bridesmaid, Victoria, is hell-bent on losing her
virginity en route before finding a husband of her own. And
shadowing them all is the malevolent presence of a disturbed
schoolboy named Guy Glover.
From the parties of the wealthy Bombay socialites to the
poverty of Tamarind Street, from the sooty streets of London
to the genteel conversation of the Bombay Yacht Club, EAST
OF THE SUN is graced with lavish detail and a penetrating
sensitivity -- historical fiction at its greatest.
