Deep in the English countryside, Marshwood has always been much more than just a house. It has been the backdrop for elegant parties, a wartime hospital and an idyllic escape from trauma and unhappy marriages. When the roof starts to cave in and the money runs out, 80-year-old Bella resists the pressure to sell and instead begins to peel back the layers of the past.
As this imposing house gives up its secrets of marriage, war and forbidden love, patterns begin to repeat themselves when Jack, Bella's granddaughter's childhood sweetheart, returns from the war in Bosnia. Like so many before him, Jack comes seeking solace. But he also wants Isla, who is unavailable to him. And as all three characters explore whether you can ever truly go back, the past and the present collide with shattering consequences.

"some other eden"
A delightful beautiful read. A fresh tale, not the usual modern book written to sexualy excite but a true tale of love. Very well written
