"India, 1839: Linny Ingram, the respectable young wife of a British colonial officer, settles down to write her life story. In the claustrophobic, mannered world of British India, Linny seems the perfect society wife: pretty, gracious, subservient. But appearances can be deceptive. Linny Ingram was born Linny Gow, an orphan raised in the cold, gray slums of Liverpool. Sold into prostitution by her stepfather when she was only eleven, Linny is a born survivor and an accomplished chameleon and manipulator. Through a stroke of luck and considerable scheming, she manages to re-create herself as a proper Victorian young lady, middle-class and seemingly respectable. By befriending a merchant’s daughter, Linny secures a place with her new companion on a ship bound for India, where they will join “the fishing fleet”—young women of good birth but no fortune who sail to India in search of a husband." (I did not write this I found it on http://www.barnesandnoble.com/ ) This book was... riveting! Enthralling, fascinating! So many words to describe it! I turned the last page with tears in my eyes. All that she's been threw I think the ending was... peaceful for Linny... The ending is basically Linny telling us 'This is it.. all my suffering is over and I'm at peace.' I rate this book:
Okay weekend colors! I think I used this color already but I want to use it again, I hope that's okay.
