From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
"Born in 1876, Princess Sophia Duleep Singh was the daughter of the last maharaja of the Punjab, who had been deposed, exiled to Britain, and given an enormous allowance to dissuade him from returning to foment insurrection. Sophia had a lavish upbringing; she was a goddaughter of Queen Victoria. As an elegant, lively young woman she was a trendsetter ... But by her early thirties she had joined the suffragettes, and she became a key figure in the movement. [This biography provides] a rare glimpse into imperialism's intimate effects, ... explores the forces that radicalized her, including an early trip to India and the British aristocracy's refusal to countenance mixed-race unions which prevented her from marrying." - "Briefly Noted", The New Yorker, January 19, 2015, p. 75.
