's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: books-set-in-asia, books-set-in-sri-lanka

I only received a proof of this today but luckily it's been one of those days where I've been travelling and waiting around a bit so plenty of time for reading!

I've just had the most productive day ever thanks to Dinah Jefferies - solved a mystery, been transported to Ceylon, discovered the world of the plantations, the difficulties of the gem and sapphire industry, a troubled marriage...this novel is packed to the rafters! It doesn't read as being too full though as it flows as neatly as the rivers through those plantations.

It's not out until April, but this has to be on your list as Dinah really is one of the best authors out there for her vivid, colourful and evocative descriptions.

Simply gorgeous with a mysterious and revealing plot that shakes out one surprise after another. Heartfelt emotions and well developed characters. A gem of a read
