A love story of extraordinary depth and power, set against the background of the afghan war. Charlotte was seventeen when she returned to Meerpore. Strictly reared, modestly dressed, affectionate and lonely, she longed to be reunited with the parents she could hardly remember. She was shattered to discover that her father was an aloof stranger, and her mother a sophisticated and beautiful socialite. Rejected by Meerpore society, by her parents, and above all by Major Colley Dupres who had dazzled her with his flamboyant and ruthless charm, she turned to the one person she could call a friend - Lieutenant Richard Lingarde. The explosion of passion in all their lives was to take Charlotte on a treacherous journey through the Khyber Pass, through siege and war and massacre. And above all it was to take her from immaturity to a woman of valour and determination.
