A stolen sister. A daughter determined to uncover the truth.

Belle Hatton has embarked upon an exciting new life far from home: a glamorous job as a nightclub singer in 1930s Burma, with a host of sophisticated new friends and admirers. But Belle is haunted by a mystery from the past - a 25 year old newspaper clipping found in her parents' belongings after their death, saying that the Hattons were leaving Rangoon after the disappearance of their baby daughter, Elvira.

Belle is desperate to find out what happened to the sister she never knew she had - but when she starts asking questions, she is confronted with unsettling rumours, malicious gossip, and outright threats. Oliver, an attractive, easy-going American journalist, promises to help her, but an anonymous note tells her not to trust those closest to her. . .

Belle survives riots, intruders, and bomb attacks - but nothing will stop her in her mission to uncover the truth. Can she trust her growing feelings for Oliver? Is her sister really dead? And could there be a chance Belle might find her?

MEDIA REVIEWS

'I was gripped, moved and utterly in thrall to this deeply emotional and compelling tale. I loved it.' - Kate Furnivall 

'This is a moving and complex story, beautifully told.' - Isabel Wolff

'I positively raced through The Missing Sister this week and adored it!' - Gill Paul

' A wonderfully compelling, immersive read with characters that stay with you long afterwards.' - Liz Trenow

'The Missing Sister is a pacy, intriguing novel. Set in an exotic, little-known location, it draws you in to its secrets and dangers; the dark recesses of Burma. I stayed up all night reading.' - Carol Drinkwater

'Dinah Jefferies has a knack of getting under the skin of her exotic locations and this story about loss and love, set in sultry Burma during the troubled 1930s, is no exception.' - Kate Riordan

'A gorgeous novel. Deliciously transporting' - Eve Chase

'A fabulous read' - Elizabeth Buchan
