Jaques, her late fathers own father had only mentioned her recently and Vicky is keen to find out more about her father whom she never met and thinks Clémence might help. The descriptions of Morocco itself – the scenery, the buildings, the food, the sounds and smells – are also beautifully done. With thanks to NetGalley and HarperCollins UK for my digital ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.Morocca is however a dangerous place and soon Vicky and Bea find themselves caught up in deadly events, when their friend is murdered and Bea disappears. In her mountain home, the Kasbah du Paradis, Clemence is awaiting her long-lost granddaughter’s arrival with mixed emotions. Separately, you can opt to book online through 12go Asia or directly through your accommodation in Marrakech, or by paying a visit to the Marrakech Train Station if you prefer to book your ticket once you arrive in Morocco. She studied to be a fashion designer and she hopes to meet Yves Saint Laurent, who spends some of his time in Marrakech.

Night Train to Marrakech - Dinah Jefferies, Author

While Daughters of War and The Hidden Palace followed the stories of the three Baudin sisters, Hélène, Élise and Florence, during World War II, this third novel moves forward to the 1960s to focus on Élise’s daughter, Vicky.

The train that runs from Marrakech to Fes is the Al Atlas Train, which is one of two trains that run in Morocco. Taking the night train in Morocco can help travelers avoid losing a day of exploring to transportation, but the idea makes many foreigners uneasy.

This was at a time of great political unrest in Morocco and Vicky and Bea soon found themselves in all kinds of trouble. Dinah is the queen of sumptuous settings, transporting the reader effortlessly from chocolate-box Devonshire to the cabaret clubs of 1920s Paris and war-torn Malta. She was definitely my favourite character: I loved and admired her many strengths (not least her sharp-shooting ability! She knows how to capture your attention, making you feel lost in a world of colors, vibrant Marrakech markets, the scent of jasmine and mint, and certainly making you crave all the tasty food described in the story.The biggest pull of the book was the sheer beauty of the descriptions that added so much to the atmosphere of the book. Clemence selbst hat allerdings so einige dunkle und traumatische Punkte in ihrer Vergangenheit, und in diesem Sommer soll noch so einiges passieren, bis sowohl der Mord als auch die Geister der Vergangenheit aufgeklärt und aufgearbeitet sind. On the night train from Marrakech to Tangier, travelers can sleep in a bed and arrive ready to start the day. Night Train to Marrakech is the 3rd and final in the Daughters of War trilogy by Dinah Jefferies and I loved it!

In 1985, the sudden death of Dinah Jefferies’ fourteen year old son brought her life to a standstill. However, Moroccan train schedules change relatively infrequently –so at the very least, the ones listed below offer a helpful guideline. Vicky Baudin steps onto a train winding through Morocco, looking for the grandmother she has never met. Mein Fazit: das war ein wunderschönes Buch, eine tolle Mischung aus Thriller, Familiensaga und Lovestory, und das vor dem faszinierenden exotischen Hintergrund des Marrakeschs der 60er Jahre. And through a series of chance encounters and coincidences, she is soon embroiled in melodrama of her own owing to the arrival of an enemy from Clemence's past and the legacy of Morocco's political history.However the main storyline, based around the life of Clemence and the political situation in Morocco, was excellent. I felt the three sisters from those books appeared in this story mainly in supporting roles, providing little details as necessary and relevant. Great sensory details that made me feel as if I was there - certainly helped by the recent oppressive heat I read it in.
