Read full description of the books:
Great for Eva Ibbotson fans and anyone who likes basically gentle historical fiction with one caveat there is a very rough scene with a boy who has been tortured. Also please note there is no romance with the main character although there is some romance in the book.
This is set in late 18th century India and is the story of a girl who has an Indian mother and an Irish father. Her mother is dead and her father missing but she has the fortune of being an incredible artist from a young age and so is taken in by a kindly Irish painter who helps her hone her craft. What she paints best is birds. Her benefactor is leaving for another part of India and she will be left with no income but in the last moment a position illustrating birds for a scientific expedition is found for her.
The story is told in the present on her trip with alternating flashbacks to the story of her mother and father. It is pleasurable, gentle, interesting, has a good female heroine (actually a few), not too many villains. This would be a good read for 11 and up especially for those who like atmospheric historical fiction.
