War, secrets and an unbearable choice- your sister or your lover?
Dinah Jefferies was born in Malaysia and moved to England at the age of nine. She has worked in education, lived in a commune and exhibited work as an artist. The Silk Merchant's Daughter is Dinah's third novel; her previous novels, The Separation and The Tea Planter's Wife, a Sunday Times bestseller, are both published by Penguin. She lives in Gloucestershire with her husband.
Beautifully written and heart-rending, this has a magical setting with a real sense of period Katie Fforde on 'The Tea Planter's Wife' A terrific emotional and atmospheric read Elizabeth Buchan on 'The Tea Planter's Wife' Dinah Jefferies has once again created a gloriously atmospheric and tension-filled novel.
