REVIEW The Tea Planter's Wife CHARACTERS ☆ The Tea Planter's Wife Dinah Jefferies ↠ 1 CHARACTERS #1 International bestselling novel set in 1920s Ceylon about a young Englishwoman who marries a charming tea plantation owner and widower only to discover he's keeping terrible secrets about his past including what happened to his first wife that lead to devastating conseuencesNin. The Tea Planter s Wife by Dinah Jeffries is a 2015 Penguin publication I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and the LIbraryThing early reviewer program The Tea Planter s Wife is an exemplary novel written with a lush literary prose which pulls me deep into the landscape and historical setting of colonial Ceylan Gwen only nineteen marries Laurence a widower after a whirlwind romance Laurence is a tea planter running a successful plantation and Gwen is determined to learn the business and be a good asset to her husband However almost from the beginning Gwen finds her husband is still haunted by the death of his first wife the staff behaves oddly and then Gwen finds she must cope with her sister in law Verity who wishes to keep Laurence all to herself as well as watching another woman try to steal away her new husband If this were not bad enough Gwen will soon face a crisis that will tear her heart to pieces while the atmosphere around her becomes almost oppressive This story is so absorbing and haunting I couldn t bear to continue reading it but couldn t stop turning pages This book taps every emotion imaginable as Gwen tries to navigate her new surroundings and faces one wall of opposition after another one trial after another while carrying a heavy burden on her heart I became frustrated with all the characters at one point or another and Verity is most certainly a poisonous character but I often found myself irritated with Laurence who constantly turned a blind eye to those issues plaguing Gwen and the people causing her such great heartache This couple will encounter incredible adversity survive hardships and endure much heartache make mistakes and harbor dark secrets in their souls Naturally the racial divide is one which causes so many misunderstandings and it is so very sad to think how this situation could have turned out differently if not for that prejudice But ultimately this is a love story one that proves love s power to overcome vindictiveness jealously grief and pain and can give the heart the fortitude to forgive accept change and move on with renewed hope This is a well written novel with very interesting historical details set in a magical location and is packed with riveting dramas that kept me engaged and very invested in the characters on an emotional level I loved the atmosphere in this one the slight Gothic tones and the tantalizing pace that swept me away to another time and place
