beautiful mistress. So why is he increasingly haunted by
ghosts from the Old Country? When the Thames bursts its
banks and his family scramble to keep their heads above
water, the very foundations of his perfect life are
threatened and Salil is forced to look to both his future
and his past for redemption.
