The Indies, in 1920: exotic and sumptuous, they tear themselves away from the colonial rule of England only to sink into violence and terrorism. Isabel is a young woman in search of herself fleeing the ravages of the Great War. She throws herself headlong into a passionate but dangerous affair with Sam, an Indian doctor who graduated from Oxford, who persists in claiming his dual identity as Indian and British. Their love takes them to the immensity of the Indies. They come close to disaster when Isabel?s husband, a soldier, tries to punish her for her infidelity.
Sam, suspected of terrorism, is thrown in prison, while the uprising against the English plunges the country into chaos.
This erotic and powerful novel addresses the themes of colonial exploitation, political and ethnic tensions, racism, and the multiple forms of separatism that still put the world in danger. It is both an epic and a poignant love story.

Translated from English (Great Britain) by Sylvie Schneiter
