It's 1812. When her father is killed, fourteen-year-old Jane, known as Suri, is sent from her home in India to relatives in England. But there she doesn't find the quiet life that was planned for her. Kidnapped for her inherited fortune by her grandmother, she escapes, only to become involved with anti-British freedom-fighters from her home country, the Punjab in northern India. Where do her loyalties lie now? With England, country of her father? Or the Punjab, the country she knows best, where her friends are, and where she grew up?
