Shortly after appearing in Book Week in 2015 Dinah’s novel The Tea Planter’s Wife shot to the top of the Sunday Times bestseller list.

In this return visit to Bewdley, Dinah will talk about her latest book Before the Rains which is set in Rajasthan in 1930.

It’s a romantic heart-wrenching story, full of action, suspense and secrets.

The Wantage Literary Festival, which was formerly the Betjeman Literary Festival, is a great festival which has featured the likes of Fay Wheldon, Kate Wiliiams, Victoria Hislop, Robert Harris and other equally illustrious names.

“Dinah Jefferies was born in Malaysia and moved to England when she was eight. Her Asian childhood held a special place in her imagination and was something she was able to revisit once she began writing novels in her sixties. “Before the Rains” is her fourth novel, and she returns to  Southern Asia annually to research each new novel.”
