Publisher's Summary

A gripping and stunning historical romance set in the British Raj for fans of Dinah Jefferies and global best seller Lucinda Riley.

At midnight where the jasmine blooms, a woman waits for her lover.

Sara Archer's future as the dutiful wife of a British official in India seems assured, until a chance meeting with the gorgeous and powerful Ravi Sabran changes everything.

Under the heat of the Indian sun, the veneer of polite society wears off quickly and soon Sara realises that nothing is as it appears to be, especially her husband, Charles.

But in the beautiful jasmine gardens of the Maharajah's palace, Sara follows a forbidden path away from her bullying husband, towards Ravi and the long-buried secrets of her own birth.

Compelling, riveting and beautifully written

The Jasmine Wife is a riveting, clever, mysterious account of colonial India written through the eyes of an outspoken, progressive girl - born to English patents in India, taken back to England for a miserable upbringing as an orphan then back to India again as the wife of a senior English beaurocrat. It is a compelling insight into the ignorance, racism and sexism of the time and place, and the triumph of love and wilfulness over rules, bigotry and drudgery. I really loved this book, Jane Coverdale has a very bright future. And the production and narrator are both excellent.
