A magical story of forbidden love, a 1990s Far Pavilions, the debut of a major storyteller. Of Marriageable Age follows three people across three decades and three continents, in a story of intertwined dramas and mysterious legacies, set against the traditional customs of a country.

Both her own and the English family are torn apart by the racial upheavals, and by Savitri's love for the son of the house. Nataraj, raised as the son of an idealistic country doctor, finds life in London heady and mind-spinning, with girls and money easily available, so drops out of both his family circle and his medical studies until a chance meeting brings him unbelievable news of his parentage. Sarojini, tempestuous and outspoken, is brought up in Guyana, part of a group of rich Indian families who settled there, and finds herself in rebellion against her strict parents and the regime.
