I just finished The Tea Planter's Wife by Dinah Jefferies. It started a little slow, and I can't say I was looking forward to reading it very much. However once the plot developed I couldn't put it down. The story follows Gwen, a new bride who comes to live in Ceylon with her previously widowed husband. There are a lot of family secrets and scandal involved which just makes the story more interesting. I thought that the author did a great job of keeping the readers attention, giving you just enough information so that you thought you knew what was happening, but saving some surprises for the end. I would definitely recommend this book!
I received this book in exchange for a review from Blogging for Books.
