THE HIMALAYAN SUMMER is a spellbinding novel of the British Raj period, the quest to find a child, and a love story beyond boundaries - for all fans of Dinah Jefferies 'THE TEA PLANTER'S WIFE and of Louise Brown's earlier novel, EDEN GARDENS.

'Beautifully written, you can smell the spices, feel the heat, and your heart will break. You will laugh, cry and you will want a sequel' Lovereading.com

Ellie Jeffreys arrives in Darjeeling with her British husband, en route to Kathmandu. They have ten-month-old, golden-haired twins, and despite appearing to be a happy family, Ellie's relationship with the overbearing, philandering Francis is disintegrating.

At a cocktail party, Ellie meets Hugh Douglas, a maverick explorer and botanist. Despite the rumours surrounding Hugh, Ellie is drawn to him. A year later, Nepal is devastated by a catastrophic earthquake and in a falling building, Ellie is forced to make an instant, and terrible, decision: she has time to save only one of her children. When she returns for her son's body the next day, it has gone. Ellie knows he cannot have disappeared; someone, somewhere has her child, and it is to Hugh that she turns for help.

“Nothing is stronger than a mother's love for her child”

I loved the gorgeously, wonderful location of ‘The Himalayan Summer’. I’ve always wanted to visit the Himalayas, Tibet in particular, the setting drew me in completely and fuelled my enjoyment of this book. The cover... More

“Novel set in NEPAL”

3.5*

A book set in a strong location is an amazing thing – I’m quite clearly in the wrong place if I don’t think that. But a book set in a location you really want to travel to is extra great. For quite a while now,... More
