A classic tale from Helen Forrester set in the heart of India. A heartwarming story of India, newly free -- a moment when the old and new clashed. Lovely Anasuyabehn had been brought up to obey her loving father in all things. But as soon as she set eyes on Tilak, the brilliant new professor at Shahpur University, she knew she could not marry Mahadev, the wealthy moneylender selected to be her husband. The trouble was that Tilak was not of her caste or religion, and shocked her community with his modern ideas. Torn between passionate love and a deep religious belief, Anasuyabehn longed to follow her heart...what she did not know was how much both men wanted her...
