When Sophie is suddenly orphaned at the age of six, she is taken from her parents' tea plantation, the only home she has ever known, to be raised halfway across the world in Scotland. As the years pass and her exotic childhood becomes a distant memory, adventurous Sophie finds refuge in her friendship with her kind, shy cousin, Tilly. It is no surprise when the girls follow each other to India to embark on new adventures, new lives and new loves. But the reality of 1920s India is far removed from their dream: the jungles are too humid and the breathtaking tea gardens too remote. And amongst the stifling beauty, intrigue abounds; while Sophie struggles with affairs of the heart, Tilly, alone in a difficult world, delves into the mystery of Sophie's parents' deaths. As the past begins to darken their friendship, will long-held secrets shatter everything they've ever striven for?

*Dinah Jefferies' first three novels now together in one e-book* The Separation Malaya, 1955. Lydia Cartwright returns from visiting a sick friend to an empty house. The servants are gone. The phone is dead. Where is her husband Alec? Her young daughters, Emma and Fleur? Lydia's search takes her on a hazardous journey through war-torn jungle. Forced to turn to Jack Harding, a man she'd vowed to leave in her past, she sacrifices everything to be reunited with her family. The Tea Planter's Wife Nineteen-year-old Gwendolyn Hooper steps off a steamer in Ceylon full of optimism, eager to join her new husband. But the man who greets her at the tea plantation is not the same one she fell in love with in London. Distant and brooding, Laurence spends long days wrapped up in his work, leaving his young bride to explore the plantation alone. It's a place filled with clues to the past - locked doors, a yellowed wedding dress in a dusty trunk, an overgrown grave hidden in the grounds, far too small for an adult... The Silk Merchant's Daughter 1952, French Indochina. Since her mother's death, eighteen-year-old half-French, half-Vietnamese Nicole has been living in the shadow of her beautiful older sister, Sylvie. When Sylvie is handed control of the family silk business, Nicole is given an abandoned silk shop in the Vietnamese quarter of Hanoi, an area teeming with militant rebels. Tran, a notorious Vietnamese insurgent, seems to offer the perfect escape from her troubles, while Mark, a charming American trader, is the man she's always dreamed of. But who can she trust in this world where no one is what they seem?

Četrnaest godina nakon „Korekcija“ i pet godina nakon „Slobode“ Franzen je napisao još jedan velik roman, „najintimniji dosad, u kojem je svojem glasu dodao neke nove tonove“. The New York Times „Čistoća“, naslov novog romana Jonathana Franzena, ujedno je i značenje imena glavne junakinje (Purity) i koncept koji zadobiva mnoge oblike u romanu. Purity Pip Tyler živi kao skvoterica u Oaklandu, opterećena je studentskim kreditom, a jedina joj je obitelj majka. Odrasla gotovo u izolaciji, ne zna majčin pravi identitet ni tko joj je otac i boji se da nikad neće imati normalan život. Druženje s anarhistima iz Njemačke odvodi Pip u Južnu Ameriku gdje počinje raditi kao pripravnica u Sunčanom projektu, hakerskoj skupini sličnoj WikiLeaksu. Pip se nada da će tamo otkriti tajnu svoga podrijetla. Na čelu grupacije karizmatični je Andreas Wolf, koji je mladost proveo u Istočnoj Njemačkoj i proslavio se u vrijeme pada Berlinskoga zida. Premda mnogo stariji od nje, Wolf pokazuje naklonost prema Pip i između njih se razvija poseban i intenzivan odnos. Ova se priča grana u prošlost i sadašnjost, u sedam povezanih dijelova knjige koji su ispripovijedani kroz prizme različitih likova. Pri tom Franzen stvara svijet originalnih i nezaboravnih likova – novinari, leakeri, ljubavnici i supružnici, loši pisci, karijeristi, tragičari. Gotovo svaki lik u romanu traži “čistoću” u nekom obliku, a propitivanje istine i laži, čistog i zagađenog događa se na mnogim razinama njihove egzistencije i međusobnih odnosa. „Čistoća“ je zamršen, ali savršeno kontroliran roman o velikim temama (život u komunizmu i pad Istočnog bloka, ogoljavanje privatnosti u eri interneta, korupcijske afere u visokoj politici, toksičnost kulture opsjednute slavom). No ipak, u samom srcu romana pulsiraju puno intimniji problemi i teme: propali brakovi, slomljena prijateljstva, mučna djetinjstva, seksualne fantazije i perverzije, trenuci kad se suočavamo s vlastitim demonima, ludilom i kaosom. Svi likovi u romanu nose neku svoju tajnu, sram i krivnju, a sâm Franzen “Čistoću” je nazvao knjigom o našim modricama i povredama. Ovim romanom Franzen je još jedanput pokazao da je izuzetan pripovjedač koji proniče u bolne točke današnjice i naše egzistencije, snažno, duhovito i s profinjenom dozom ironije.

In India, what good is honesty and integrity if it doesn't make you rich? The first requisite of a businessperson in India is to have a lot of greed and love for money to the exclusion of everything else in life. Along with this, one should be prepared to sacrifice everything to achieve success in business, even basic things like self-respect, honor, and, of course, honesty have little or no place in it. Corruption has increased globally. Urmila Bhargava was born to an affluent family of lawyers in British, India. As a young married woman, she lived in the tea districts, enjoying a life of comfort. But all too soon she was repulsed by the unpalatable truth of the British elite that merit alone was not sufficient to achieve success in the corporate world, and that there were other considerations to get promotions. In 1976, after her husband's sudden demise, she became an instant entrepreneur in the field of recycling used oil-even though, at the time, she had no technical knowledge. From politicians to tea planters, government employees to friends and relations, Bhargava gives us an intimate and often startling view of life in India over the past fifty years. She shares with us the challenge of being a businesswoman of uncompromising standards, who, for more than two decades, singlehandedly fought corrupt practices in India-ultimately achieving success in her business, which, up till now, has been the domain of men.

My name is Layla and I was born under an unlucky star. For a young girl growing up in India, this is bad news. But everything began to change for me one spring day in 1943, when three unconnected incidents, like tiny droplets on a lily leaf, tipped and rolled into one. It was that tiny shift in the cosmos, I believe, that tipped us together—me and Manik Deb. Layla Roy has defied the fates. Despite being born under an inauspicious horoscope, she is raised to be educated and independent by her eccentric grandfather, Dadamoshai. And, by cleverly manipulating the hand fortune has dealt her, she has even found love with Manik Deb—a man betrothed to another. All were minor miracles in India that spring of 1943, when young women's lives were predetermined—if not by the stars, then by centuries of family tradition and social order. Layla's life as a newly married woman takes her away from home and into the jungles of Assam, where the world's finest tea thrives on plantations run by native labor and British efficiency. Fascinated by this culture of whiskey-soaked expats who seem fazed by neither earthquakes nor man-eating leopards, she struggles to find her place among the prickly English wives with whom she is expected to socialize, and the peculiar servants she now finds under her charge. But navigating the tea-garden set will hardly be her biggest challenge. Layla's remote home is not safe from the powerful changes sweeping India on the heels of the Second World War. Their colonial society is at a tipping point, and Layla and Manik find themselves caught in a perilous racial divide that threatens their very lives.
