All My Noble Dreams and Then What Happens

nobledreamsThere aren’t many upper middle grade books set in 1920s India. Rosalind, from a British colonist family, loves India and consorts with Ghandi followers, much to her military father’s chagrin. She tries to meld her two worlds: the one where she dances with the Prince of Wales and the other, where she tries to weave her own khadi.

Complete with a large cast of British and Indian characters, Gloria Whelan‘s historical novel shows the struggle Rosalind has when ideals don’t match up.
