Charlotte's Library review of Sophie in Shadow

 From Charlotte's Library: one of my best reviews ever.

Tragedy and culture-shock combine to wake in Sophie a gift of sorts--her perceptions of both past and future become strangely sharpened.  And her visions will make her a player in the tail end of Kipling's Great Game--the game of intrigue, political machinations, and spying in which European powers, and now Indian nationalists, shape the future of the country.  World War I is underway in Europe, and plots are afoot in India that may well destroy both Sophie's new family and British control of the sub-continent. Charlotte's Library May 2014

 I've just come across this 2012 article from the online Daily Mail. It seems that my imaginary drowned world off the coast of England actually existed.
