A mysterious package propels a young Scottish widow on a journey that takes her around the world. On her perilous quest, she discovers unsuspected truths about the brother she thought had died, in this luminous and accomplished debut novel.
From the Publisher:
Catherine MacDonald is astonished to receive from her twin brother--who had apparently drowned a year earlier in the monsoon floods of 1821--a kashmiri shawl, a caddy of unusual tea, and a sheaf of traditional bagpipe music in his handwriting. When had he sent it? And why had he retitled a certain tune "Not Yet Drown'd"? Irresistibly, she is drawn to India to search for answers. With her stepdaughter and their two maids--one an enigmatic Hindu, the other a runaway American slave--she follows an obscure trail of tea, opium, and bagpipe music, discovering unsuspected truths about the man she is seeking. Reading group guide included.

Receiving a gift from her believed-dead twin brother in 1822, Catherine MacDonald travels to India with her stepdaughter and maids in search of answers, a quest that takes her along an obscure trail of tea, opium, and artistic works. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.
