A dramatic war-time story which transports the reader to London during the Blitz, to Occupied France, and to the rolling Chiltern hills of Buckinghamshire. It is the story of two cousins who, as squabbling rivals, are thrown together by the outbreak of war.
Sylvie, marooned in England has left her parents behind in Nazi-occupied Normandy. Whilst she hides her distress behind a wall of bitterness, Nell has her own problems watching the slow crumbling of her parents' marriage, As the war rages on around them, the competition and jealousy between the cousins battles on – especially when they fall in love with the same man. But the machinations of war change the course of all their lives, with devastating consequences. And whilst Sylvie continues to hurt those who love her and to hide her pain behind her tough facade, Nell can only find solace in the September Garden - the walled garden that her father tended so lovingly before he left. This is the only place she feels safe in, to where she is always drawn, and where she decides to hide her most dreadful secret...
