Description - Not Yet Drown'd by Peg Kingman

Catherine MacDonald is astonished to receive from her twin brother-who had apparently drowned a year earlier in the monsoon floods of 1821-a kashmiri shawl, a caddy of unusual tea, and a sheaf of traditional bagpipe music in his handwriting. When had he sent it? And why had he retitled a certain tune "Not Yet Drown'd"? Irresistibly, she is drawn to India to search for answers. With her stepdaughter and their two maids-one an enigmatic Hindu, the other a runaway American slave-she follows an obscure trail of tea, opium, and bagpipe music, discovering unsuspected truths about the man she is seeking. Reading group guide included.
