Review

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

(Santa Montefiore)

Beautifully written and heart rending, this has a magical setting with a real sense of period. (Katie Fforde)

A gloriously atmospheric and tension-filled novel that centres on the separation of a mother and her child. Immensely enjoyable, poignant and compelling (Isabel Wolff)

Vibrant and compelling - Dinah Jefferies perfectly captures the flavour of colonial Ceylon (Rosanna Ley)

I was spellbound from beginning to end (Deborah Rodriguez)

A wonderful book, deeply touching and an unforgettable read that swept me away. I loved it. (Kate Furnivall)

Dark secrets lie at every turn, hidden beneath layers of 1920s racism and the fearfulness of a crumbling colonial power, making for a thoroughly gripping tale. But what I loved most of all. . . is the moving way in which Dinah writes about the loss of children and the redemptive power of love. (Liz Trenow)

A terrific emotional and atmospheric read (Elizabeth Buchan)

Deeply atmospheric and utterly engrossing (Lucy Cruickshanks)

Rich and incredibly evocative, historical fiction at its best...it's just spellbinding (Sunday Express)

From the Inside Flap

Nineteen-year-old Gwendolyn Hooper is newly married to a rich and charming widower, eager to join him on his tea plantation, determined to be the perfect wife and mother.

But life in Ceylon is not what Gwen expected. The plantation workers are resentful, the neighbours treacherous. And there are clues to the past - a dusty trunk of dresses, an overgrown gravestone in the grounds - that her husband refuses to discuss.

Just as Gwen finds her feet, disaster strikes. She faces a terrible choice, hiding the truth from almost everyone, but a secret this big can't stay buried forever . . .
