Arriving in England in 1939 on a troopship from Bombay, Phyllis a young Anglo-Indian woman finds the motherland she’s always dreamed of visiting not quite what she had longed for. War is declared a few months after her arrival. Her British soldier husband is sent off to war, leaving Phyllis to defend herself from her overbearing and at times cruel in-laws. Based in Devon we find our Memsahib longing for home in her beloved India…. The land of her birth and the only life she has ever known. This is a story of love, loyalty and loss. It is as moving as it is uplifting. Phyllis is no wallflower. She defends her place with immense courage and stoicism.
