Description

Almost as soon as she arrives, her mothers says she has a request – she wants Florence to find out what happened to Rosalie (Claudette’s sister) who ran away from Paris twenty years before and might be in Malta. It would have helped to have a short resume of it before starting this one as it took some time to catch up with the characters. In 1985, a family tragedy changed everything, and she now draws on the experience of loss in her writing, infusing love, loss and danger with the seductive beauty of her locations. The story will thankfully continue in the final volume ‘Night Train To Marrakech’, which is due to be published later this year.

Born in Malaysia, she moved to England at the age of nine, and went on to study fashion design, work in Tuscany as an au pair for an Italian countess, and live with a rock band in a commune in Suffolk.Jefferies does not provide clues as to how the story will unfold and I liked how I could not predict whether Florence would be able to fulfil her mother’s wishes. I thought it was brilliant the way the author raised an issue which is still very much prevalent today as you forget that things like this have existed for a very long time. She is published in 29 languages in over 30 countries and lives close to her family in Gloucestershire. Through their journey Jack and Florence have become much closer but she knows she can’t thread in the footsteps of Helene whom it was clear had more than just a friendly affection for Jack.

The Hidden Palace', part 2 in The Daughters of War trilogy, carries on from where the previous novel finished, though I think it reads perfectly well as a stand alone. In the earlier strand of the story, we follow Rosalie in the 1920s in Malta as she too uncovers some dark secrets. Florence hasn’t seen her estranged mother Claudette in years, and their reunion isn’t quite what Florence is expecting, and her mother asks her to find her missing sister Rosalie. Here's what Santa Montefiore said: ‘My ideal read; mystery, love, heart-break and joy – I couldn’t put it down.

We are on a tea plantation in 1920s Ceylon and 19 year old Gwendolyn Hooper is the new bride of the owner, a wealthy and charming widower. The Tea Planter’s Wife is a wonderful book on so many levels, intensely moving and beautifully observed. Her romance with a member of the British aristocracy seems doomed to failure but he introduces her to the stunning palace his uncle owned in Mdina. When I bought this book I didn’t realise that it was the second book in the Daughters of War trilogy.
