The Secret Wife

Over here at Avon we are HUGE fans of Dinah Jefferies; we inhaled THE TEA PLANTER’S WIFE in mere hours and were queueing at the door of London Waterloo’s WHSmiths for THE SILK MERCHANT’S DAUGHTER. So imagine our delight when the incredible Ms Jefferies read one of our favourite books of the year, Avon author Gill Paul’s THE SECRET WIFE and described it as, ‘A cleverly crafted novel and an enthralling story… A triumph.’ We were over the moon! It was time for a celebration. But then… THE SECRET WIFE went on to hit the Kindle Top Ten and our excitement went stratospheric.

This is definitely a book to shout about. 5* reviews are pouring in on Amazon. (And Dinah loves it, remember!) So if you’re looking to cosy on down during these dark autumnal nights then look no further than this sumptuous, enchanting novel. 

If you love a gutsy heroine then this is the book for you. If you love sweeping historical fiction then this is the book for you – set in Romanov Russia at the start of the Great War, as the Tsar’s power teeters on the brink of collapse, the Grand Duchess Tatiana has fallen in love with cavalry officer Dmitri but events take a catastrophic turn, placing their romance – and their lives – in danger… If you think nothing beats a heart-breaking love story, then this is the book for you. And of course if you love anything to do with Russia (yes, that includes vodka), then this is the book for you.

Dinah says, ‘A TRIUMPH’. We say, ‘A TRIUMPH.’ Let us know what you say!
