KIRKUS REVIEW

A disarming, intimate picture of an Indian girl who returns to her native land to find herself a ""foreigner"" because of ten years' absence and an English education. The author -- and her sister --face difficulties of conforming to a new status, problems of mastering techniques demanded by their family, the delicate issues of Anglo-Indian relations, the customs of the country in regard to women's clothes, smoking, domestic affairs, marriage, religion; they become embroiled in politics...Absorbing detail and interesting conflicts. A very human approach to the Indian problem.
