Product description

Nationally bestselling author Elle Newmark's rich, sweeping novel brings to life two love stories, ninety years apart, set against the backdrop of war-torn India. 1947. India is rife with violence surrounding Britain's imminent departure. Yet Evie Mitchell is eager to start a new life there with her husband, Martin, a troubled anthropologist, and their young son. It is in their colonial bungalow, hidden behind a brick wall, that Evie makes a startling discovery. Evie finds a packet of old letters that tell a strange and compelling story of love and war involving two young Englishwomen who lived in the same house in 1857. Consumed by their story, she embarks on a mission to uncover what the letters don't explain. Along the way, she unearths a dark and disturbing secret. Bursting with lavish detail and vivid imagery of Bombay and beyond," The Sandalwood Tree" is a powerful story about betrayal, forgiveness, fate, and love.

Review quote

"Newmark escalates tension subtly, weaving two intricate stories together and building a narrative that I could not put down. The characters linger long after the final page." --Brunonia Barry, "New York Times "bestseeling author of "The Lace Reader"
