The Harvest of Time shuttles between nineteenth-century India and present-day Britain, as friendships and loyalties between an eclectic group of individuals are continually put to test. Along these transnational trajectories, self and other become entangled as they try to forge their distinctive identities and speak in their own voices. Amos Goldstein, a young student at the Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge, takes a trip to India to retrace the footsteps of his Uncle Zachariah, hoping to discover what he thinks is going to lead him to the centre of his own being. He finds himself in a room where his uncle might have spent some time, almost a century ago, and also in the arms of Nilanjana, a Ph.D. student at Chicago. This love will take him into the deep jungles of Chattisgarh. From within the heat and dust of the vast hinterlands of India, he hears the whispers of an eloquent silence. Soon, a vow bequeathed by William Hudson to his descendants will be fulfilled.
