Finally, there is the story of Solomon's grandson, making his own stand for independence. A host of characters enliven these pages - from Father Ashcroft, the English priest washed up in a forgotten corner of the empire, to Mrs Wilkins the planter's wife who clings to the old ascendancy, and Helen, an Anglo-Indian beauty who brings about the final disintegration of the family.
