Publisher's Summary

When Sophie is suddenly orphaned at the age of six, she is taken from her parents' tea plantation, the only home she has ever known, to be raised halfway across the world in Scotland.

As the years pass and her exotic childhood becomes a distant memory, adventurous Sophie finds refuge in her friendship with her kind, shy cousin, Tilly. It is no surprise when the girls follow each other to India to embark on new adventures, new lives and new loves.

But the reality of 1920s India is far removed from their dream: the jungles are too humid and the breathtaking tea gardens too remote. And amongst the stifling beauty, intrigue abounds; while Sophie struggles with affairs of the heart, Tilly, alone in a difficult world, delves into the mystery of Sophie's parents' deaths. As the past begins to darken their friendship, will long-held secrets shatter everything they've ever striven for?

Wonderful storyline ruined by dreadful narration . Poor poor Scottish accents. I come from Edinburgh so I should know.

Wonderful

Enjoyed listening to The Tea Planter's Bride. The story pulled you in from the start,. At times I found myself frustrated with Sofie as she seemed so infatuated with Tom because he was good looking. I found the story well developed, and it held my interest to the very end. I strongly recommend this book to either read or to listen to.

Great Story!

I really enjoyed this book. It was a fantastic story, and the narration was amazing. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys journeying back in time, learning about what life was like not only for women, but for all in the early 1900's. Great read!

A 5 Star beautiful book...wish it hadn't ended..

I smiled, I loved & hated characters, I loved the narrators performance..brilliant! I cried many times to the point I stayed up all night to finish this great book! I just wished and wished the last chapter had gone onto another 5 chapters..it was as if this wonderful author..since I am reading & listening to all of the series...didn't want to go into another story line. I can understand it was a long book, but I've listened and read book up to 20 hours for just one book? I am onto number 3 of the series, I wish it was on audible, but overall wonderful, Indian, Scottish, beautiful, love story...please make the last one into listening as well?

Excellent read.

Any additional comments?

I listened to all three books in this triology consecutively and they didn't disappoint. I loved the characters and felt I was really engaged with them. The storyline holds its own until the end and certainly doesn't disappoint. I also enjoyed the historical aspect of the story, learning much about India and Indian nations during British occupation. All together, stories that flow well, are totally believable and are character driven.
