Based on an extensive collection of letters, diaries and photographs, it gives us remarkable insights into the lives of Iris, her mother Violet, grandmother Annie, as well as various aunts and great-aunts." "Iris McFarlane came to India in 1939 and stayed for almost three decades. She returned in 1996 after a gap of almost thirty years, and the visit led her to reflect on the lives of her female forebears - from her great-grandmother's recollections of mid-nineteenth-century India and the uprising of 1857, to her own experience as a tea-planter's wife. For anyone interested in the social history of the British empire and its colonies - particularly India and Burma (Myanmar), or of imperial missions in general, this account will reveal a world which is familiar, yet strange."--BOOK JACKET." ;
