    An empowering message of strength, independence and compassion in the face of adversity

    This is the story of young Rosalind, an inquisitive girl growing up in India during the early 1900s. Her best friend is her nurse-maid's daughter, an Indian girl who is the same age as she is. Rosalind grows up learning to love India and all the exciting things it has to offer a curious girl such as herself. Being a spirited young child, she often gets herself into trouble, as she rarely gives in to conformity, as is expected of a genteel little lady. Preferring to visit bazaars over the country club, and getting caught listening to such outrageous public speakers as Ghandi, her father insists she return to their homeland of England where she can receive a proper education in academia and refinement. This book, while offering a fascinating glimpse into the history of India in the early 1900s as it endeavored to gain independence from Great Britain, offers a message of strength, independence and compassion in the face of adversity. This is a refreshingly honest book for young readers, devoid of the sarcasm and negative values often found in children's literature today. This book comes highly recommended and earns the Children's Literary Classics Seal of Approval - The CLC Seal of Approval is a designation reserved for those books which uphold the rigorous criteria set forth by the Children's Literary Classics review committee, a team comprised of individuals with backgrounds in publishing, editing, writing, illustration and graphic design.

    Ummm..

    It was not phenomenal, because the first (and most of the second) half lagged something exciting. PS I give it 2.5 stars,not 3.
