Return to Ceylon with The Tea Planter’s Wife’s author
Ceylon, 1935. Louisa Reeve, daughter of a successful British gem trader, and her thrill-seeking businessman husband Elliot have it all…except what they long for more than anything: a child.
While Louisa struggles with miscarriages, Elliot is increasingly absent, spending his time at a nearby cinnamon plantation. After his sudden death, Louisa is left to solve the mystery he left behind. Revisiting the plantation at Cinnamon Hills, she is unexpectedly drawn towards the owner, Leo, a rugged outdoorsman with a checkered past. The plantation casts a spell, but all is not as it seems. And when Elliot’s shocking betrayal is revealed, Louisa can turn to no one but Leo in this breathtaking story from the author of The Tea Planter’s Wife.
