Following on from her TV Book Club success with THE LANTERN, bestselling author Deborah Lawrenson returns to the south of France with another captivating story of wartime love, secrets and bravery.

Present day. On a lush Mediterranean island off the French coast, Ellie has accepted a commission to restore an abandoned garden. It seems idyllic, but the longer Ellie spends at the house and garden, the more she senses darkness, and a lingering evil that seems to haunt her.

Second World War. Two very different women have their lives irrevocably changed: Iris, a junior intelligence officer in London and Marthe, a blind girl who works in the lavender fields of Provence and is slowly drawn into the heart of the Resistance. As secret messages are passed in scent and planes land by moonlight, danger comes ever closer...

Perfect for fans of Tracy Rees, Rachel Hore and Rachel Rhys, this gripping historical will have you gripped from the first page.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Centred on a landscape gardener commissioned to restore a Second World War memorial garden, a blind women apprenticed in a perfume factory in Nazi-occupied Provence and an intelligence officer in wartime London, The Lantern author offers three novellas cleverly interconnected to form a tale of love, mystery and murder - BIG ISSUE IN THE NORTH

an enthralling story of wartime love and bravery punctuated with evocative descriptions of the beautiful south of France - FRANCE MAGAZINE

THE SEA GARDEN weaves a double spell, and honestly, it got me right from the start. Lawrenson steeps her story of the invisible heroes of the French Resistance crossing borders - and here, crossing time - deep in the eerie beauty of the South of France. The result is a marvellous strange fruit: think Graham Greene served up with a dash of Poe - Sarah Blake, author of The Postmistress

“Wonderful evocation of the south of france”

I really enjoyed this set of three novellas, all subtly connected. There is a dash of the gothic, some very convincing historical fiction set against the liberation of provence, and a good spy story. Well worth a read.

I simply loved this book. It is divided into three novellas which weave together seamlessly at the end. The writing is just beautiful in evoking time and place as the storyline travels between past and present. The... More
