What would have made The Tea Planter's Wife better?
If it contained more detail. Characters were vague and their actions were not fully explained.
Ceylon sounded beautiful. The descriptions of the scenery, clothing and weather added to the story but with regards to the actual characters, nothing was made very clear.
What will your next listen be?

Her Husband's Lover
Good book with lots of twists and turns. Never knew who the 'goody' was or who to 'side' with!
Quite enjoyable but unfortunately the end was a massive let down. Bit lazy I think.
