Gloria Whelan

The year is 1921 as British-born Rosy returns to India, the place she considers home, to discover a new world where followers of Gandhi are asking for India’s freedom from Great Britain. Her strict father is a major in the British Army and Rosy feels conflicted as she sympathizes with the Indian people. Using her charm, wit, and intelligence Rosy manages to present her case to her father and the Prince of Wales. This standalone companion to Small Acts of Amazing Courage (2011) creates a vivid picture of the life and customs during this changing era. Author Whelan received the National Book Award for Young People’s Literature for her novel Homeless Bird (2000). Ages 9-11
