'Atmospheric, heart-rending and multi-layered' Grazia
From the Number One internationally bestselling author of The Butterfly Room & The Moon Sister comes a romantic and moving page-turner which sweeps from war-torn Europe to Thailand and back again . . .
Julia Forrester has many happy memories of a childhood spent at Wharton Park, playing amongst the exotic flowers her grandad cared for.
Now, recovering from a family tragedy, she once more seeks comfort at Wharton Park, newly inherited by the charismatic Kit Crawford, with a sad story of his own.
But when an old diary is found during renovation work, the pair turn to Julia's grandmother to hear the truth about the love affair that turned Wharton Park's fortunes sour . . .
And so Julia is plunged back in time, to the world of Olivia and Harry Crawford, a young couple torn apart by the Second World War - and whose fragile marriage is destined to affect the happiness of generations to come, including Julia's own.
