FROM THE NUMBER 1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE TEA PLANTER'S WIFE

The Separation, Dinah Jefferies' stunning debut novel, is the heartbreaking tale of a family fractured by lies and one mother's love reaching across the distance of years and continents.

A country at war with itself,
a family divided and betrayed,
a bond that can never be broken...

Malaya, 1955. Lydia Cartwright returns from visiting a sick friend to an empty house. The servants are gone. The phone is dead. Where is her husband Alec? Her young daughters, Emma and Fleur?

Fearful and desperate, she contacts the British District Officer and learns that Alec has been posted up country. But why didn't he wait? Why did he leave no message?

Lydia's search takes her on a hazardous journey through war-torn jungle. Forced to turn to Jack Harding, a man she'd vowed to leave in her past, she sacrifices everything to be reunited with her family.

And while carrying her own secrets, Lydia will soon face a devastating betrayal which may be more than she can bear . . .

A tense and steamy 1950s Malaya, beautifully described. I loved it (Lucinda Riley Author of 'Hothouse Flower' and 'The Girl on the Cliff')
