Book: A Dip at the Sangam – by Reuben Lachmansingh

Discover how sugar – white gold – changed the world, and how coolie indentureship replaced slavery through trickery and kidnapping. Against the backdrop of plantation life, the author, a master of innovative historical fiction, lures the reader into a world of intrigue, adventure, and romance.

Caught up in this grand scheme, thugs snatch Raja away from his pretty wife and herd him to join the hundreds of thousands before and after him onto a sailing ship in Calcutta headed to the distant colony of British Guiana. The year is 1869.  

When the British fail to return Raja to his homeland, he makes good as a free man in the new colony. In his old age, he returns to his native home. Will he relight the spark of a once beautiful romance? Does he find solace in the Old World or the New?   Read more and Order from Amazon       also     Read first chapter free – Download PDF
