Now that her older sister is married, twelve-year-old Neela Sen knows their mother will be looking for a husband for Neela. But Neela's heart is stirred more by the fiery talk she overhears about India's freedom struggle than it is by talk of marriage. When Neela's father goes to Calcutta to learn more about the fight for independence from Britain, he doesn't come home when he's expected. Where can Neela go for help in finding her father?
