Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Missing Sister by Dinah Jefferies. 

Belle Hatton has embarked upon an exciting new life far from home: a glamorous job as a nightclub singer in 1930s Burma, with a host of sophisticated new friends and admirers. But Belle is haunted by a mystery from her past - an old newspaper clipping found in her parents' belongings after their death, saying that the Hattons were leaving Rangoon after the disappearance of their baby daughter, Elvira. 

Belle is desperate to find out what happened to the sister she never knew she had - but when she starts asking questions, she is confronted with unsettling rumours, malicious gossip, and outright threats. Oliver, a ruggedly attractive American journalist, promises to help her, but an anonymous note tells her not to trust those closest to her....

Belle survives riots, intruders, and bomb attacks - but nothing will stop her in her mission to uncover the truth. Can she trust her feelings for Oliver? Is her sister really dead? And could there be a chance Belle might find her?

Atmospheric and rich in historical detail

Thoroughly enjoyed this, at times almost far fetched and flowery, without the grittiness the storyline perhaps deserves, however, I think this would actually make a brilliant sequel- especially at this time and setting in history.

Ruined by the narration

About a third of the way through and not sure I’ll finish it as I’m finding the narrator really irritating. She makes every one of the women sound wet and the men just aren’t real. And her accents are terrible. A Burmese official sounds vaguely Welsh rather than Asian, and an American just sounds weird.

I will probably revert to just reading the text. Have previously enjoyed Dinah Jeffries’ book so i think it’s the narration that is spoiling it for me with this one.

Worth it

I found the beginning a little bit slow, but once you reach the end you are very grateful for all the detail at the beginning. This is my favorite Dinah Jefferies book so far.
