He soon begins to detect undercurrents and strains beneath his hosts courtly generosity. The family is in sad decline from the heyday of its prestige and power, and, to rescue its fortunes,Sakuntala, the elusive and romantic youngest daughter,appears destined to be sacrificed in a loveless arranged marriage to the feeble-minded son of distant wealthy relatives.

The tensions between East and West, tradition and modernity grow steadily more complex and more taut as an unspoken relationship between Jonathan and Sakuntala develops.
