I have been a fan of Kimberly Duffy’s books since her debut came out and I love that she transports her readers through time and space to India. This historical delves into some sensitive issues that were present in the day, including the bubonic plague.
Augusta’s story is riveting especially with the introduction of her childhood friends, especially Gabriel. And let’s just say that Gussie’s uncle is a favorite too.
This historical by Duffy has it all, adventure, romance, conflict and resolution.
And on top of that, her vivid depiction of the scenes bring India to life. Highly recommended.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Augusta Travers has spent the last three years avoiding the stifling expectations of New York society and her family’s constant disappointment. As the nation’s most fearless–and reviled–columnist, Gussie travels the country with her Kodak camera and spins stories for women unable to leave hearth and home. But when her adventurous nature lands her in the middle of a scandal, an opportunity to leave America offers the perfect escape.
Arriving in India, she expects only a nice visit with childhood friends, siblings Catherine and Gabriel, and escapades that will further her career. Instead, she finds herself facing a plague epidemic, confusion over Gabriel’s sudden appeal, and the realization that what she wants from life is changing. But slowing down means facing all the hurts of her past that she’s long been trying to outrun. And that may be an undertaking too great even for her.
