Period drama, set in 18th-century Delhi, years before the territory fell under British colonial rule.

Violet witnesses Chandrika going into John’s room at night, and tells his mother what she saw. Margaret is devastated when she finds out and resolves to leave Delhi. John realises his only hope of persuading her to stay is to reveal the truth about his past and the baby’s identity – even if it puts the child’s safety in jeopardy.
