Are two coins all a lady's reputation is worth? In 1883 Calcutta, it's more than unusual for a woman to sue a man in open court. When both parties are missionaries, and the man accuses his female opponent of sexual misconduct with a native Christian and another missionary, newspapers fly off the shelves in Calcutta, Edinburgh, and even London. But what really happened?

Two Coins: A Biographical Novel (Women of Determination and Courage)
Mrs. Wilson believes walking solves most things, so she lends me her coat and sends me to the village to pick up any letters. Today there’s one for me from Dr. Scott. I want to tear into it, but I’m afraid. I don’t want to open it alone. I head back to the cottage and Mrs. Wilson and I open the letter together. The note is very short. Dr. Scott requests that I come to his office at my earliest convenience. I’m speechless as I am sure this is not a good sign.
