Book Review: The Tea Planter’s Wife


Every now and then you’ll pick up a book that you can’t put down. That was the case with The Tea Planter’s Wife by Dinah Jefferies.

The story takes place beginning in 1920s Ceylon, where young Gwendolyn left her home in England and has married Laurence, a Tea Planter. She loves the estate, but has a bit of a difficult time getting used to the culture and the seeming racism and prejudice between tea planters, house workers, field workers and the like.

But what she doesn’t realize is that her husband has some very deep secrets and she has one of her own that will change the way that she lives her entire life.

There are some plot twists and turns and the surprise ending will shock you.

I loved following Gwendolyn’s story and even loved learning about tea plantations in the 1920s. It was simply fascinating! Two thumbs up for this one!
