“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.”
