Description
In the late 19th and early 20th century, many of Britain's young women adventurously set out for India, where—outnumbered four to one by eligible men—this "fishing fleet" could be sure of finding husbands. In this history—illustrated with 24 pages of black and white photographs—the author of Diana Mosley and The Viceroy's Daughters depicts the glittering whirlwind of parties, tennis tournaments, tiger shoots, and palatial banquets in the Raj, all geared toward the prospect of romance. Drawing on a wealth of unpublished memoirs, letters, and diaries, Anne de Courcy brings these bold women vividly to life.

"A seasoned social historian, de Courcy brilliantly evokes the era, often by allowing her heroines to do the talking.... De Courcy's book restores their proper reputation: as brave, sometimes batty, irredeemably British heroines."—Mail on Sunday (UK)
