    I only received a proof of this today but luckily it's been one of those days where I've been travelling and waiting around a bit so plenty of time for reading!I've just had the most productive day ever thanks to Dinah Jefferies - solved a mystery, been transported to Ceylon, discovered the world of the plantations, the difficulties of the gem and sapphire industry, a troubled marriage...this novel is packed to the rafters! It doesn't read as bei...

    Dinah Jefferies is the author who woke my passion for reading Historical Fiction and this latest book is just as enchanting as her previous ones. There is something special about Dinah’s colourful writing that instantly transports me to the current location and fills me with its sights, sounds and smells. Whether it is a house, street or, as in this book a cinnamon plantation I am right there as each setting is so beautifully described and brou...

    Another great read by Dinah Jeffries set in Ceylon in the mid 29th century.The story centres around Louisa who is married to Elliot and living Ceylon all seems perfect but when Elliot dies suddenly everything she thought was right starts to unravel. Set against the backdrop of tropical forests and the insular community of ex pats a very satisfying read.

    Another delightful read by Dinah Jefferies.The writer transports you through exotic plantations where we meet Louisa and her husband Elliot who have faced difficulties throughout their married life. When he dies, Louisa finds out that she never really knew him at all and surprises herself.Definitely recommend this book.Thank you to the author and NetGalley for choosing to read this ARC.

    To say I'm a massive Dinah Jefferies fan is an understatement, so the chances that I would be disappointed were almost nil and The Sapphire Widow did not disappoint!! Its a fabulous "snuggly blanket" read and is just as good as all of the previous books. Dinah Jefferies writes in such a brilliantly descriptive way that you actually feel as if you're right in the middle of the various locations, seeing the sights and smelling the air. The main cha...
