Customer Review

on 25 January 2012
This book really doesn't work. At the level of the collection of letters upon which it is supposedly based, these are simply too few to give a coherent history. At the level of a novel the character painting is poor and at no point are you made to care what happens to any of them. The letters add little to the storyline and if you expect to become more knowledgeable about tea and quinine plantations in the East Indies then you will be sorely disappointed.
Sales to the descendants of the Kerkhoven Family probably account for its popularity rather like the audience in a school Nativity Play.
