I loved the setting of this story, Dinah Jefferies brings to life, the sights and sounds of Ceylon in the 1920’s. Her rich descriptions transported me to this beautiful country. The characters are very much of their time and place. The story gradually unfolds to reveal an interesting twist which kept me guessing until the author in a timely manner revealed the family history. I look forward to reading further novels by Dinah Jefferies.
