All My Noble Dreams and Then What Happens by Gloria Whelan

In this sequel to Small Acts of Amazing Courage, Rosalind, a teen living in India, constantly finds herself “at war” with her father, a deputy commissioner in the British Civil Service. She sees “how unfair it is for England to rule over India.” He believes “the Indians are not ready for freedom.”

In 1921, when Edward Prince of Wales announces a visit to India, Rosalind and her family are invited to meet him. Soon Rosalind is pressured by a friend to give the Prince of Wales a message, a plea for India’s independence. In this situation and others, Rosalind courageously tries to act with integrity. And she learns that doing the right thing is often the most difficult thing. Ages 10 and up. (Simon & Schuster)
