The amount of effort the author put into the research for this book is astounding. Details about and descriptions of the scenery of India are well done. The information revealed of scientific research and discoveries during the Victoria time period is interesting. It was very appealing that, while there was a romantic aspect, it was not the primary focus of the book. The author handles the various religious and cultural differences with great care and respect.
