THE DIAMOND DAUGHTER: Raj Hotel Series: Book 3 Kindle Edition
Filled with excitement and a little trepidation, Jeanie Munro is returning to India and her husband Mungo, having been forced apart from him by the long years of the Second World War. She has high hopes of helping him with his new role as headmaster of the prestigious Nicholson’s School in the idyllic setting of Murree in the foothills of the Himalayas. Together, they can start their longed-for family. But post-war India is in a ferment of change and the undercurrents of tension begin to disturb their tranquil outpost. Still grieving for her beloved brother, killed in action in the recent war, Jeanie – vivacious and optimistic by nature – tries to make the most of her new life. But after serving in the Anti-Aircraft Brigade during the war, she is no longer the biddable, naive young wife who left India in 1939 and finds life at Nicholson’s restrictive and lonely. Despite Mungo disapproving of them, her only true friends are the Lomaxes, a family haunted by scandal and owners of the glamorous Raj Hotel in Rawalpindi. Invited to the Raj for an Anglo-Indian wedding, Jeanie finds escape and enjoyment among this vibrant mixed-race community – and is especially drawn to handsome, fun-loving Rick – but knows that duty must not allow their mutual attraction to grow. Then, just as Jeanie is becoming reconciled to her lot, explosive, long-buried secrets come to light that shake her world to the core – and leave her facing the hardest decisions of her life.
THE DIAMOND DAUGHTER is the third and final novel in THE RAJ HOTEL SERIES.
Praise for The Raj Hotel Series:
"Richly detailed, satisfyingly long, superb historical fiction." —Portybelle Book Blogger
“A compelling read set against a most atmospheric backdrop…another splendid read.” —Swirl and Thread
"Kept me on the edge of my seat, wanting to know what was going to happen, so that I ended up staying up way too late because I was completely caught up in this story, never have I gotten lost in a book and then realized that it was almost one in the morning, and then hating to have to put the book down, knowing that I really should go to bed and get some sleep." —Sky's Book Blog
"Trotter’s new book is an intoxicating blend of the last days of the Raj and World War II" —Netgalley Reviewer
"Janet Macleod Trotter is an amazing author and I will never forget these two books. Th emotion she brings to the page is outstanding. The audio narration brought the books alive and I could see India in my mind’s eye through her wonderful descriptions. I also learnt a lot about the war in India and am keen to learn more ... I would highly recommend you either read or listen to this series. They were truly amazing!" —Audiobook Reviewer
