1905 INDIA: Clarissa Belhaven and her younger sister Olive find their carefree life on their father's tea plantation threatened by his drinking and debts.

Then Wesley Robson comes back into Clarrie's life, bringing with him a shocking revelation ...Set in the fascinating world of the Edwardian tea trade, THE TEA PLANTER'S DAUGHTER is a deeply involving and moving story with a wonderfully warm-hearted heroine. One of the Tyneside Sagas.
