The Splendor of silence is about Sam Hawthorne; a 25-year-old U.S. Army captain who arrives at Rudrakot in search of is missing brother, Mike, carrying with him wounds from combat in Burma and several secrets. But Sam's mission is threatened by the unlikeliest of sources — he falls in love with Mila, daughter of the local political agent. Mila nurtures a secret of her own and finds herself torn between loyalty to her family and Sam. The book opens 21 years later with Olivia, Sam's daughter, receiving a trunk of treasures from India, along with a letter from an unknown narrator that finally fills all the silences of her childhood — telling her the story of her parents' love for each other that throws them in the path of racial prejudice, nationalist intrigue, and the explosive circumstances of a country and a society on the brink of independence from British rule.The splendour of silence Indu Sundaresan
