This is an auction for an audiobook of THE SECRET CHILDREN by Alison McQueen.

Read by Jilly Bond.

Amazon.com review:

"Assam, 1925. James MacDonald is one of the sons of empire who has no yearning for England. Running a tea plantation, he loves India and is reluctant to choose a British bride from the eager crowds sent over. But when he takes a beautiful young Indian woman as his courtesan, he can little imagine what he has begun. So starts the story of Mary and Serafina. Born of two worlds, accepted by neither. Growing up beloved but hidden away, their childhood is one of contradiction. It is only as the shadow of war falls and the turmoil of Indian partition begins, that the girls must face the truth about their parents and begin the search for somewhere to belong. It will be a journey full of forbidden questions, hidden answers, heartbreak and determination."

"FIVE STARS!!! I loved this book from the very beginning and found the plight of the two little girls very thought provoking. It was a good insight into the days of British supremacy in India and how selfish and thoughtless deeds can wreak havoc in people's lives. It was beautifully written and evocative in style."

"FIVE STARS! The secret children are daughters of an Indian beauty from a backward village in Assam and an English tea planter. It begins in 1925 when children of mixed race belonged in neither Indian or English society. The girls grow up, they world of their childhood is lost,and they must struggle to find their places in the world. This book held my attention from beginning to end."
