The Tea Planter's Wife

THE NUMBER ONE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

Dinah Jefferies' unforgettable new novel, The Tea Planter's Wife is a haunting, tender portrait of a woman forced to choose between her duty as a wife and her instinct as a mother...

Nineteen-year-old Gwendolyn Hooper steps off a steamer in Ceylon full of optimism, eager to join her new husband. But the man who greets her at the tea plantation is not the same one she fell in love with in London.

Distant and brooding, Laurence spends long days wrapped up in his work, leaving his young bride to explore the plantation alone. It's a place filled with clues to the past - locked doors, a yellowed wedding dress in a dusty trunk, an overgrown grave hidden in the grounds, far too small for an adult...

Gwen soon falls pregnant and her husband is overjoyed, but she has little time to celebrate. In the delivery room the new mother is faced with a terrible choice, one she knows no one in her upper class set will understand - least of all Laurence. Forced to bury a secret at the heart of her marriage, Gwen is more isolated than ever. When the time comes, how will her husband ever understand what she has done?

The Tea Planter's Wife is a story of guilt, betrayal and untold secrets vividly and entrancingly set in colonial era Ceylon.

'Captivating, powerful and passionate' Deborah Rodriguez on The Separation

'A richly detailed story... as intimate as a kiss and as sharp as the blade of a knife' David Gilham on The Separation

'I simply didn't want to put it down. Vivid and atmospheric - you can smell the tropics, feel the drenching heat...' Isabel Wolff on The Separation

Rezension

My ideal read; mystery, love, heart-break and joy - I couldn't put it down
