The Tea Planter's Bride By: Janet Macleod Trotter
"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?
Revised edition: This edition of The Planter's Bride includes editorial revisions."

"The Tea Planter's Bride" by Janet Macleod Trotter
This was a very enjoyable story that continues from the 'India Tea Series' in 'The Planter's Daughter.' The author does a good job in giving the reader a well rounded story about Sophie Logan. The story surrounds you with a bit of history, with some romance that will keep you intrigued in what will happen next in Sophie's life. Will Sophie be able to find the love she wants in her life and also find out what had happened to her parents that were taken away from her at such a early age? The characters were all so very developed, portrayed, defined giving you a interesting quite a story that centers from India to Britain and back again to India. Be ready for some twist and turns that will definitely keep you turning the pages getting a little bit of 'love, relationships, death, friendship and even some mystery to it all.' The reader will definitely get a taste of India's [landscape, food & people] and what was going on historically at that time. I see there is another series coming and I was glad to see that because I had a few questions that weren't answered for me in this read so hopefully in 'Girl From The Tea Garden' will give it to me. I found this novel a enjoyable good read!
