Amazon Editorial Review

Esme was a woman edited out of her family's history, and when, sixty years later, she is released from care, a young woman, Iris, discovers the great aunt she never knew she had. The mystery that unfolds is the heartbreaking tale of two sisters in colonial India and 1930s Edinburgh - of the loneliness that binds them together and the rivalries that drive them apart, and lead one of them to a shocking betrayal - but above all it is the story of Esme, a fiercely intelligent, unconventional young woman, and of the terrible price she is made to pay for her family's unhappiness ...

A good griping read, had me hooked from the first page.

OMG what a thought provoking book, this was. Makes you think a lot about what happened to some people who were different or a handful to look after. Or just free willed

I felt really emotional for esme after what happened to her that made her loose most of her life to one of those awful mental institutes. My heart goes out to her after all she has been through. I came to hate Esme's betraying older sister kitty and the consequences of the what kitty did. It teaches you to think before you act.

I honestly couldn't put this down its the quickest book I have read, it kept me reading long after bedtime. I really felt they could of touched more on Esme's time whilst being in incarceration at the "mental asylum" (I hate to use that word) I also wish it were that bit longer

The book arrived today along with some lovely tea. I am not at home so I just had the chance to see it in a photograph my boyfriend sent to me. As soon as I come back I'll have plenty of books do pay-it-forward with. Thank you :D
