She makes an unlikely friend but soon loses her heart - to the one person she shouldn't fall in love with. On the night of Indian independence, something happens that changes everything for Sophie.

Years later, Sophie has almost managed to put the past behind her. But when her diplomat husband is posted to Delhi, she finds her secrets won't stay buried. As India struggles with its new identity, Sophie realizes her own story is about to fall apart. Facing the truth will mean a journey back into her past and to the memory of a young boy with tourmaline eyes.
