Set in India and Britain in the 1930s and 40s in turbulent times, my heroine Adela Robson – a tea planter’s daughter – has ambitions to become an actress.

Much of the novel is set in the old capital of the British Raj, Simla (now Shimla) which I visited two years ago and discovered places where my own mother and grandparents had lived …jan-at-christchurch-lodge

My new India Tea Series novel is launching on 6th December

 

In the dying days of the Raj, Anglo-Indian schoolgirl Adela Robson dreams of a glamorous career on the stage. When she sneaks away from school in the back of handsome Sam Jackman’s car, she knows a new life awaits—but it is not the one she imagined.

In Simla, the summer seat of the Raj government, Adela throws herself into all the dazzling entertainments 1930s Indian society can offer a beautiful debutante. But just as her ambitions seem on the cusp of becoming reality, she meets a charming but spoilt prince, setting in motion a devastating chain of events.

The outbreak of the Second World War finds Adela back in England—a country she cannot remember—without hope or love, and hiding a shameful secret. Only exceptional courage and endurance can pull her through these dark times and carry her back to the homeland of her heart.

A REBELLIOUS WOMAN!

The French know how to make a stylish entrance! And this is what my French publisher, Presses de la Cite has done with their new version of my novel A HANDFUL OF STARS.

A Handful of Stars - French cover

They have called it UNE FEMME INSOUMISE (A Rebellious Woman) which is a fair comment on my ambitious, glamorous yet warm-hearted heroine, Clara.

The cover also conveys the glamour of the 1930s period in which the novel is set:

It’s 1931 and the Depression has brought Tyneside to its knees. Young, pretty Clara Magee is devastated when her father commits suicide leaving secrets behind him and the family is forced to sell their fancy-goods shop to a German couple. Despite her mother Patience’s disapproval, Clara befriends their daughter Rennie and hot-headed son Benny, but her heart lies with their dashing elder brother Frank. Patience thinks businessman Vinnie Craven, who runs the local boxing hall, a far better catch for Clara. When Frank leaves abruptly for Germany, Vinnie single-mindedly pursues the vivacious Clara, determined to make her his wife. Tempted by the glamorous life-style Vinnie is offering and security for her family, Clara buries her feelings for Frank. But she hadn’t bargained for Vinnie’s ruthless nature or growing fascination for Mosley’s Fascist Party. Yet the greatest shock is still to come …
