    One of the books I enjoyed reading the most as a young adult and which didn t disappoint when I re read it later A gigantic best seller in its time, unjustly forgotten but weirdly enough, still popular in France another of those American novels I read in French at the time A tale about imperial India written by a writer who deserves to be remembered not only because he knows how to write an intelligent popular novel and tell a story packed with characters, plots, adventures and exotic landscapes, but also because he actually really has something to say about India, a country that was then at a turning point of its history It s very melodramatic, in a spectacular way, but it works brilliantly, and it s impossible to put down The heroine, Edwina, remains a fascinating character And the depiction of the devastations following an earthquake and a massive flood are riveting and very realistic.

    I had this book on my shelves for almost an year now and always picked something else instead of it I don t know why I was reluctant, probably because of the cover which made it look like a cheap book with cheesy storyline But I was so wrong It was a great read and all the characters developed extraordinary You can see in this book how people truly are, when they cannot put the masks any, when they are faced with real life crisis Also, the author did great job describing the catastrophe that hit the region, you can feel the tension and desperation that surrounds Ranchipur and you are amazed by the solidarity that people show The most unexpected persons in the most unexpected times.

    Louis Bromfield, a prominent author before WWII, now largely forgotten, wrote popular novels and championed organic agriculture and socialism This long, fast moving novel, set in a princely state in India in the 1930s, follows the intersecting lives of American missionaries, British bureaucrats, Indians from all walks, and European expatriates as they cope with a severe earthquake and ensuing flood and cholera outbreak The plot was compelling, the characters believable, and the descriptions resonant My main quibble too much socialist philosophizing, especially toward the end.

    This book was an incredible read Thank you, GR, for directing me to it, and to an author new to me It was long, but compulsively readable, with a great cast of characters and so many insights into human nature I just loved it

    I finished this about a week ago I love to read the great forgotten authors and in my opinion Bromfield is one of the best If you enjoy reading Hemmingway, you would also love Bromfield.

    One of my favorite books I read it about once a year.

    One of the most beautiful and moving narratives of India I ever read while in high school Back then I really was passionate about anything that had to do with India, being pretty much under the spell of Mircea Eliade This was one of the best novels about it, and I still think it s very well written.I especially like the multiple story lines and the simple, not very in your face cultural otherness observations The tragic love story also helps making the novel moving, of course.

    Brilliant book written by someone who loves an understands that country and its people and accepts it with their merits and flaws Loved every sentence of it

    I liked this book very much The author was complete stranger to me, I found the book on the shelf among other old ones old editions in a private library and I do not regret picking it The facts about life in India accord with what I had read in a travel book of Czech author who lived in India for quite time later in the 20th century he worked there when he was young as a volunteer at Service Civil International His name is also forgotten, like someone has written here about Louis Bromfield Jan Baltus.At the same time, I have to admit that the novel Night in Bombay by Bromfield didn t catch my tastes It seemed much as repetition of the story in Rains and I put the book away after several tens of pages Did I make a mistake
