Small Acts of Amazing Courage : Whelan, Gloria By Gloria Whelan

    Kindness has incredible consequences in this compelling novel set in colonial India from a master storyteller (Publishers Weekly) and National Book Award winning author.It is India, 1918, six months after the end of World War I, and Rosalind awaits the return of her father from the war. Rosalind is kept from boarding school in England at her mothers insistence. While her father has been at war, Rosalind sees the country slowly change. A man named Ghandi is coming to power, talking about nonviolence and independence from Britain. Rosalind longs to live the life that her heart tells her, not what her parents prescribe for her, but no one seems to listen. This penetrating story, told with lush and vivid detail, contrasts Rosalinds privilege and daily experiences in India with the hardship of the people around her. As she comes of age during this volatile period of history, will she find the courage to claim her own identity and become her own person? National Book Awardwinning author Gloria Whelans insight into history and her characters minds make every moment of this saga believable (Publishers Weekly, starred review). This paperback edition includes an excerpt of All My Noble Dreams and Then What Happens, the standalone companion to Small Acts of Amazing Courage. Small Acts of Amazing Courage : Whelan, Gloria
