The Raj Quartet, Volume 3: The Towers of Silence (Paperback)
India, 1943: In a regimental hill station, the ladies of Pankot struggle to preserve the genteel fa ade of British society amid the debris of a vanishing empire and World War II. A retired missionary, Barbara Batchelor, bears witness to the connections between many human dramas; the love between Daphne Manner and Hari Kumar; the desperate grief an old teacher feels for an India she cannot rescue; and the cruelty of Captain Ronald Merrick, Susan Layton's future husband.
