By: Stephen King

Review by Jonathan Trice

When it comes to reading for fun I tend to get in a rut. I devoted eighteen months to the works of Neil Gaiman, another six months straight of Edward W. Robertson novels and the past year has seen a heavy rotation of Stephen King.  When it was time for a new book, I chose 11/22/63 because it is the first work of historical fiction for Stephen King and I was still in a rut.  Continue reading

Tea Planter’s Wife

Tea Planter's WifeThe Tea Planter’s Wife by Dinah Jefferies

Review by Saj Bewtra

Amazon.com describes Jefferies’ US debut novel as “set in 1920s Ceylon, about a young Englishwoman who marries a charming tea plantation owner and widower, only to discover he’s keeping terrible secrets about his past, including what happened to his first wife, that lead to devastating consequences.”

A friend of mine from Detroit read this novel while on a cruise. As soon as she came home she told me I had to read it. She knew I’d love the story. She was right. The Tea Planter’s Wife is beautifully written. A novel that kept me intrigued from beginning to end. I just couldn’t put it down. Simply put, I expect this book to be the next hard-to-get novel. Therefore, place a hold today!
