It's 1857 and the four teenage May sisters are enjoying an endless round of parties in the colonial town of Shivapur. When a violent rebellion breaks out, they take refuge in an isolated Indian village. Each changes in her own way as they adjust to a new culture, but they all begin to question England's right to rule India. As the rebellion ends, the sisters return home to take up the threads of their old life...with a difference. Soon they discover that their mother has matrimonial plans for them- plans they are determined to resist. Louisa May Alcott meets Jane Austen in this hilarious blend of adventure, history, and, of course, romance.
Since obtaining her doctorate in English Literature from the University of Buffalo, Jane Nardin has taught English Literature at Universities in North America, Europe and Asia. Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen, Maud Hart Lovelace and Sydney Taylor rank among her favourite authors, and after reading Jeanne Birdsall's 'Penderwicks' books, updating Louisa May Alcott's Little Women, she decided to write her own story, her debut novel LITTLE WOMEN IN INDIA, about a family of four likeable sisters, caught up in the great Indian Mutiny of 1857. Jane has two daughters and three granddaughters- her own Little Women- all of whom love to read. She currently lives in Singapore with her husband.
