This book is in a series about the Darcy Family. When the book starts, Fitzwilliam Darcy is opening a trunk given to him that was his Uncle George's, a physician who practiced in India in the late 1700's. Upon opening it, he discovers it is filled with stacks and stacks of old journals his Uncle had written throughout his lifetime. He starts reading them and we start the story of Dr. George Darcy's life. He writes these entries as a letter to his twin, Alex, who died at a young age which had prompted him to become a doctor. Dr. George Darcy is young, rich, good-looking, and arrogant but he is also a brilliant doctor who lives this fascinating life travelling all over India practicing medicine. He comes to love the country immensely.
I absolutely loved this book. I had not read the other books in the series but it did not stop me from really enjoying it. The author obviously spent a lot of time and research to be able to tell of the things happening at this time in history. It is fun, engaging, and full of history. I would strongly recommend this to anyone who enjoys historical fiction. It is an amazing book. I had not read the others in the series but now will be going back and reading them. Great novel!!!
