Lilamani: A Study in Possibilities
Oxford University Press, 2004 - 363 頁
Maud Diver's Lilamani (1911) offers the reader what is perhaps the most detailed consideration of the issue of mixed marriage in Anglo-Indian (Raj) fiction. Lilamani recounts the marriage of Sir Nevil Sinclair and Lilamani, the daughter of the noble Rajput and Anglophile, Sir Lakshman Singh.
In this marriage between two people of good birth and lineage, who are carefully established as equals in all but race, Diver carefully brings together what she sees as the best of the two cultures.
