The topic was interesting, Brits in India in the early 19th Century, but I'd prefer reading the actual letters of Fanny Parks and Emily & Fanny Eden from which the author got her story. Moore is an old favorite of mine for her beautiful, evocative writing and she did not disappoint in that aspect of the book, but I found the characters lacking.

Although I read this many years ago, it's evocative descriptions of Hawaii and growing up there stay with me and it remains one of my all-time favorites. As www.dovegreyreader.com so perfectly described it in her 1/27/2011 review:
I always think as I read a book like My Old Sweetheart that I want to read many more books like this. Spell-binding and measured books with a store of quietly held revelations kept in reserve, that make me gasp a little, novels that countenance no interruption and make you look up to think and then feel quite surprised to find that the world is still there happening around you. This felt like a book of blessed quietness, it has a quality of stillness and fragrance about it, created in part by the heady langour of the heat with its power to oppress and stifle, but also to radiate and infiltrate. There is a certain light that shimmers here, and a moment when Anna and Lily swim to an underwater cave that actually transported me there....yes, holding my breath to dive and everything and feeling that slight sense of panic about getting out again, even if I was sitting here in my thermals.… (más)

Well worth the time. I learned a lot about how things were at first contact, how incredibly quickly things changed, and what was lost and what was gained.
