The Fishing Fleet
Husband-hunting in the RajBook - 2012
From the late 19th century, when the Raj was at its height, many of Britain's best and brightest young men went out to India to work. Countless young women, suffering at the lack of eligible men, followed in their wake. The women were known as 'the fishing fleet', and this text is their story.
