A brilliantly written, beautifully crafted, un-put-downable true story of an individual taking on the full might of the British Empire and winning. I cannot recommend this novel more highly . It is written with pace, colour, balance and true love for the subject. This is an incredible first novel.
What a beautiful story! What a book. Telling the story of the first signs of people not accepting the colonial behaviour of Britain - amazing that 150 years ago an Indian takes on the British in their own parliament....and wins. Extraordinary.
