This book, based on true events, tells the story of Cecilia Chattergee. Written by her great-granddaughter, Bernie Morgan, it is a sweeping tale set in India against the backdrop of the movement for independence.

Cecilia is a woman fighting for her own independence. She ploughed her own path, the subject of gossip and scandal, her life choices defying the conventions of the day. She had four husbands, thirteen children and became a pioneering barrister under British rule.


From the plague of Bombay to the earthquake in Quetta, from the early days of the Raj to the end of the Indian Empire, Cecilia's tumultuous life will take you on a journey that will leave you amazed. Her story has never been told before.
