    A Wonderful Read

    The Missing Sister was a lovely read and a perfect combination of powerful description and captured emotions. Set in Burma in the 1930s, Dinah Jefferies' depiction of the richness of the environment and surroundings were so atmospheric and mesmerising. As the main characters struggled to work out who to trust, I also tousled with different accounts of events in an attempt to untangle the myriad of secrets that had affected their lives. I really enjoyed the level of romance as it enhanced the core mystery and essence of the story, without overpowering it. The conclusion was immensely satisfying and left me with a great sense of well-being. The Missing Sister is a definite must-read for those who enjoy a historical setting or period with the puzzle of a family disappearance.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this read and the creative ability Dinah was able to bring out the many different emotions that the characters were going through. Great research.

    A great read

    Dinah Jefferies style of writing does not disappoint in this latest novel. Set in pre-war Burma in the 30's when a young Belle Hatton travels there to work as a singer. She has history with Burma as her baby sister disappeared 25 years earlier and her mother, suffering from grief was sent away after being investigated for harming the child. Belle makes friends with Gloria and Edward who seem keen to help her find out what happened to her sister, Elvira but each lead ends up being a dead end. She also makes friends with journalist Oliver who also helps to try to find any information on the mystery. Belle travels wherever the leads take her and faces danger from an unknown person. The story flips between Belle's journey and the historical tale of her mothers life after Elvira disappeared. Some of the chapters merge so it can be a little confusing at times but a great tale of grief, loss and a determination to find the truth.

    The Missing Sister

    I adore the backdrop of Dinah Jefferies' stories - the Far East and the descriptive of the landscape. The stories are always gripping and this was no exception.
