From the Editor

As the night draws in, there’s nothing I like more than an epic love story (envisage the drama of The English Patient) that sweeps you away to a wonderful setting and leaves your heart full and ultimately uplifted. In The Emerald Affair, Janet MacLeod Trotter delivers just that, pure indulgence!

At the end of World War I, Esmie McBride meets Captain Tom Lomax and forms an instant attraction, but it is her vivacious friend, Lydia, who charms Tom to marry her. Desperate to leave his war scars behind, Tom is seeking new adventure with a hotel investment in India. Unsure of her next steps yet still drawn to Tom, Esmie agrees to marry Tom’s friend Harold, and the two couples set sail for new horizons.

The Raj Hotel is a charming and vibrant backdrop to the hopes and dreams of these two newlywed British couples, but beneath the colorful and exotic surface, loyalty and friendship are tested by local dangers and conflicting emotions.

Among the beguiling sights, smells, and atmosphere that the author depicts, tensions between Esmie and Tom grow, as does their breathtaking draw to one another. As Esmie battles whether to give way to her emotions and embrace the attraction she’s been fighting, you’ll be unable to resist wondering whether love or duty wins the day.

- Sammia Hamer, Editor
