Synopsis of book»

1914. To the delight of her parents, Violet Prideaux is set to marry local squire Weston Penruth, until an incident during their engagement party sees her leaving behind her friends and family and fleeing to London. There she meets artist Jack Fairling, and it is not long before they have fallen in love. But when Jack enlists, can their happiness survive the horrors of war?

1936. When Violet’s daughter Aster reaches the age of twenty-one, she receives a letter that turns her world upside down. With the support of her childhood friend Harry Penruth and the comfort of her mother’s treasured flower book, she travels to London to discover her destiny. And as Aster unearths the lies and secrets of her childhood, a future of love and hope may be closer than she realises . . .

'A sensitive and poignant love story with twists, turns and a pervading sense of sadness and an overwhelming sense of inevitability reminiscent of the great Mazo de la Roche. Beautiful writing, a lovely read'Books Monthly

'An absorbing novel about life and love at the time of the Great War. The characters are all wonderfully written, with great depth and shades of light and dark... The story plays out beautifully and the book was quite impossible to put down.'The Bookbag
