Review

International Praise for The Tea Planter's Wife
Love, suspense, guilt, and hidden secrets with an underlying theme of race relations seamlessly blend together in a timeless story of an innocent young Englishwoman struggling to find her place in colonial Ceylon against unexpected circumstances and facing cruel choices.
New York Journal of Books
[A] dramatic tale of jealousy, deceit, secrets and heartbreak. The intrigue and suspense, add a Gothic flair to Jeffries fast-moving plot and the evocative atmosphere along with the realistic characters will captivate readers.
Romance Times Book Review
Spellbinding effortlessly elegant, lushly descriptive...Combine this with the vivid, evocative manner in which Jefferies describes the beauty of Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, and the captivating cast of characters she has created, and you have a superbly written novel that readers of historical fiction as well as women s fiction will treasure.
Booklist (starred review)
[A]n engrossing taleof mystery, manners, and prejudice set against the backdrop of Ceylon (current-day Sri Lanka) Jeffries shows that she can weave a suspenseful tale in which characters complex motivations converge in surprising ways.
Publishers Weekly
"Rich and incredibly evocative, The Tea Planter s Wife is historical fiction at its very best. It s just spellbinding."
