Tea Planter's WifeMake yourself a cup of tea and settle in with this book! Set in 1920’s Ceylon, The Tea Planter’s Wife follows Gwen Hooper from a young, naive English bride of a tea plantation owner, moving to a place both foreign and beautiful, to a mature woman who has kept a painful secret close to her heart for years, but she’s not the only one with secrets and through out the book, she desperately tries to figure out what troubles her widower husband, Laurence. Gwen must navigate the culture and the business of tea, while trying to sort out the mysterious death of her husband’s first wife and child. In the end, Gwen will learn that life has a complicated way of working things out. Richly detailed with a colorful canvas of a waterside tea plantation and its exotic inhabitants, author Dinah Jefferies, takes us on Gwen’s journey of love, loss, and forgiveness. Dinah Jefferies is the author of other historical novels including the upcoming The Sapphire Widow, scheduled for release April 5th. I received this book from Random House for an honest review.
