Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The Tea Planter's Wife by Dinah Jefferies, read by Avita Jay.
Nineteen-year-old Gwendolyn Hooper is newly married to a rich and charming widower, eager to join him on his tea plantation, determined to be the perfect wife and mother. But life in Ceylon is not what Gwen expected.
The plantation workers are resentful, the neighbours treacherous, and there are clues to the past - a dusty trunk of dresses, an overgrown gravestone in the grounds - that her husband refuses to discuss.
Just as Gwen finds her feet, disaster strikes. She faces a terrible choice, hiding the truth from almost everyone, but a secret this big can't stay buried forever....

Overall, an entertaining book

The story is very interesting, as is the exotic setting. Sometimes, especially towards the end, it gets a little over sentimental. Also, the main character seems at times irritatingly weak. As a woman she is a bit of a ninny and not too interesting. Still, a good plot that holds your attention.

Talk About MENTAL!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Tea Planter's Wife to be better than the print version?

This book is worth the listen. It will give you historical insight and intrigue you with the psychology of the protagonist. I would listen to this book again.
