The Tea Planter's Wife
Allow yourself to be swept away to Ceylon with this gorgeously immersive novel from Dinah Jefferies. Nineteen-year-old Gwendolyn steps off the steamer, thrilled to join her new husband, but the man that greets her is not the one she fell in love with. Soon she falls pregnant, and is faced with an unthinkable choice in the delivery room - one she knows nobody else will understand. We were mesmerised by this story of guilt and buried secrets, and we think you will be, too.
