Augusta Travers has spent the last three years avoiding the
stifling expectations of New York society and her family's constant
disappointment. As the nation's most fearless--and reviled--columnist,
Gussie travels the country with her Kodak camera and spins stories for
women unable to leave hearth and home. But when her adventurous nature
lands her in the middle of a scandal, an opportunity to leave America
offers the perfect escape.
Arriving in India, she expects only a nice visit with childhood friends, siblings Catherine and Gabriel, and escapades that will further her career. Instead, she finds herself facing a plague epidemic, confusion over Gabriel's sudden appeal, and the realization that what she wants from life is changing. But slowing down means facing all the hurts of her past that she's long been trying to outrun. And that may be an undertaking too great even for her.

Augusta Travers is a risk taker, with a heart that is full of compassion, and we travel in her shoes, from the US to India, and you will never know where you will end up!
Gussie loves life and people, and especially her childhood friends, Specs, aka Gabriel, and Catherine, and ends up finding them, after many years, in India.
This story is filled with family, joy, compassion, and love! Yes, love for friends and for those less fortunate, going beyond words with action, and in Gussies case pictures.
This is a story that is filled with emotions, and whether you agree with what is going on, and I'm sure you will have an opinion, I sure did, we travel along, and in the end, didn't want the story to end. I did love the epilogue.
