About the book
Cecilia Chattergee (1876-1947) was a woman who defied convention. She was a lawyer in India, at a time when women didn’t have careers. She was a Parsee who married outside of her religion. She lived as a widow when Indian society ostracised widows. She also endured unimaginable trauma and tragedy, yet never lost sight of her ambitions.
Set against the backdrop of India’s struggle for independence, this is the story of one woman’s struggle for her own independence. Her fight to live her life her way and improve the life chances of her children.
