The true story that inspired The Planter’s Bride by Janet MacLeod Trotter

In a tale of tigers, tennis and tea parties Janet MacLeod Trotter will be talking about the real life experience of her grandparents, who trekked into remote parts of the Himalayas in 1920s India, and how this inspired the latest novel in her India Tea Series: The Planter’s Bride.

You are invited to the paperback launch of The Planter’s Bride which will take place in Morpeth, Northumberland at 3pm on SATURDAY 7th JUNE at The Chantry Museum

The event is free but to book a place please email:

or telephone: 01670 623455

Unique cine footage that Janet’s forester grandfather filmed in the foothills of the Himalayas – and never before shown in public – will provide the backdrop to readings from the novel. Take a look at this taster clip showing Janet’s mother and uncle being transported in a basket on top of a mule along the narrow mountain tracks!
