Waterstones Says

Past and present collide in Harriet Evan’s intriguing new novel, which moves between narratives set at either end of the twentieth century. There’s much pleasure to be had in the contrasts between lives connected by a home and family history but divided by the passage of time. There are secrets lurking every corner of this well-told story of love, obsession and the consequences of transgression.

Nightingale House, 1919. Liddy Horner discovers her husband, the world-famous artist Sir Edward Horner, burning his best-known painting The Garden of Lost and Found days before his sudden death.

Nightingale House was the Horner family's beloved home - a gem of design created to inspire happiness - and it was here Ned painted The Garden of Lost and Found, capturing his children on a perfect day, playing in the rambling Eden he and Liddy made for them.

One magical moment. Before it all came tumbling down...

When Ned and Liddy's great-granddaughter Juliet is sent the key to Nightingale House, she opens the door onto a forgotten world. The house holds its mysteries close but she is in search of answers.

For who would choose to destroy what they love most? Whether Ned's masterpiece - or, in Juliet's case, her own children's happiness.

Something shattered this corner of paradise. But what?
