Aroview: An English spinster living out her twilight years teaching in India befriends a young couple whose motives might not be what she suspects.

Tender portrait of a woman adrift in a foreign culture is both a fitting analogy for the colonial experience in post-partition India, and a bittersweet examination of loneliness.
