wealthy Muslim family to interview the widows of a wealthy man whose will was being disputed Since no man can approach ladies in purdah, the job falls to one of the very few female attorneys in town, Perveen.In The Satapur Moonstone, her sex is again to her advantage as she is asked to meet with the widows and mother of the ruler of a small, remote princely state, where the Hindu women also live in purdah The British entity in charge of this state has received letters from both the mother and grandmother of the 10 year old maharajah asking for opposite solutions to his education Perveen is placed in charge of deciding how the child will be educated No fan of British rule, she sees this as an opportunity for an Indian to help a young Indian ruler Oh, and there s also the suggestion that the child s life is in danger.Massey effortlessly weaves in information about traditions of different Hindu castes, her place as a Parsi a Zoroastrian and the extraordinary wealth of these states Their prejudice regarding different castes and how someone s caste is their fate Not very flattering, but very, very interesting and true to the period.Like The Widows, there s no slack in The Satapur
