Historical | Science Fiction Alternate History
The year is 1984 and the British Empire is still intact.
Peta Firth, a bookish district officer in the remote Kyinwe
district of Burma, is bored and lonely and longs for
friendship and a meeting of minds. After a riot devastates
the town, Captain Henrietta de Carnac and her detachment of
cavalry troopers are sent to enforce civil order.
Peta is drawn to this mysteriously aloof figure, who causes
offence by commandeering the Government Secondary School
playing fields for her polo practice and by declining
invitations to dinner with the District Commissioner and his
wife. Sent to read the Riot Act by her superior, Peta is
given short shrift and temporarily finds herself on the side
of the Henrietta-haters.
Join Peta and Henrietta on their journey towards friendship
and understanding in a relationship that defies the rigid
class-bound strictures of colonial society, one that risks
everything for the promise of a brief period of happiness.
