But somehow the Bird Girl of Calcutta, art supplies in hand, finds herself on an eye-opening journey up the Ganges, apprenticed to a gentleman scientist. As the lush landscape slips by, Anila dives into her past — a past where her beautiful Bengali mother still tells stories and her Irish fathers mysterious disappearance lingers. Gorgeously written and rich with atmosphere, Mary Finns debut novel tells the story of a determined young artist who must make her way in the dangerous world of late-eighteenth-century India.
