    Sahgal s writing verges on poetry, particularly in its descriptions of landscape and geography For the main narrative voice of the text, Anna Hansen, the forests of India s hill country serve to shrink the world they remind her of the Alps to the point that she feels she s hardly left Europe even while they conceal the violent mystery around which the text revolves Set at the outbreak of WWI, _Plans for Departure_ offers a unique perspective on the conflict Hansen a Danish woman in I Sahgal s writing verges on poetry, particularly in its descriptions of landscape and geography For the main narrative voice of the text, Anna Hansen, the forests of India s hill country serve to shrink the world they remind her of the Alps to the point that she feels she s hardly left Europe even while they conceal the violent mystery around which the text revolves Set at the outbreak of WWI, _Plans for Departure_ offers a unique perspective on the conflict Hansen a Danish woman in India finds herself removed from the people who populate her world, as neither a citizen of the British Empire or an Indian national The shifting narrative style allows the reader to experience a variety of different voices, all of which espouse very different perspectives on the burgeoning conflict taking place at such a geographical remove I would have given this book five stars if not for the entirely unbelievable love story interwoven with the smart political commentary which spans women s rights, the impetus for imperial dominion, and whether there is justice to be had when power is racially delineated Definitely worth a read
