In the latter part of the nineteenth century, Mr. Kirkman, a bookseller from Manchester, England, received a telegram from his son requesting that he takes the SS Princess Margaret to Calcutta.
On this formidable passenger steam ship, Mr. Kirkman, traveling in first class, found himself uncomfortable with the treatment between first class passengers and the rest; yet, estranged among high society himself.
After nearly a month of travel, he finally rendezvoused with his son, uneasy after their years apart but also as a result of the startling assurance with which, Jonathan, now risen to a tea plantation owner, carried himself. His son, contrarily, confirmed his father merely as a weak, pedantic and backward man. So, when his father was kidnapped by plantation workers, would Johnathan come to the rescue?
This is the 23rd novel of B Du. It depicts the division between father and son in the class-ridden world of the late nineteenth century.
