One Last Look by Susanna Moore
One Last Look tells the story of Lady Eleanor, her sister, Harriet, and her brother, Henry, the newly appointed Governor-General who arrive in India in 1836. Their six years in India are told via Eleanor's diaries, beginning with her confidence in the superiority of their British aristocratic pedigree, and changing slowly over the years to an acceptance of the reality of this new world that lays claim to her soul. Harriet grows from a naive, lisping girl to a woman falling in love with both a man and India, while Henry clings to his obsolete vision of power and falters in his leadership. Susanna Moore's novel brings to life the beauty and squalor of the country that changes them forever. One Last Look has received high praise with the New York Times saying, "With One Last Look, Ms. Moore has worked a satisfying variation on many of her perennial themes and produced a compelling and richly textured story."
