The Tea Gardens

Spirited Doctor, Isla Fenwick, is determined to work at the confronting face of medicine in India before committing to marriage to a charming Westminster parliamentarian. With hopes of making a difference she sails to Calcutta to set up a midwifery clinic at a major hospital. There she will be forced to question her beliefs, her professionalism and her loyalties.

On a desperate rescue mission to save the one person who needs her the most, she travels into the foothills of the Himalayas to a tea plantation outside Darjeeling. At the roof of the world, where heaven and earth seem to touch, Isla will be asked to pay the ultimate price for her passion.

From England’s seaside town of Brighton to India’s slums of Calcutta and the breathtaking Himalayan mountains, this is an exciting novel of heroism, heartache and healing.
