Ida Grace Nina Dudman – known as Dolly to her family – was born when Queen Victoria was the Empress of India on 18th December 1897 and died on Easter Sunday 1983. She was brought up like a little princess but suffered much tragedy and upheaval in her life – two world wars, the Indian independence struggle, partition and most of all her long separation from her great love although they did manage to be reunited after seventeen years apart.

Despite marrying a Muslim, she remained true to her upbringing and culture unlike many who completely lost their identity after marrying out of their own community.

She has no memorial, no gravestone, nothing. But this book is – hopefully – the assurance that she will never be forgotten.

Born in British India during the Raj, Cassiopaeiae was brought up by her maternal aunt and this book is a tribute to her “two” mothers. Her natural mother and her aunt who she always called Mamma.
