May 1914. Nestled in Sussex, the Summerhayes mansion seems the perfect country idyll. But a long-running feud between the Summers and their neighbour, Lady Summer's brother, threatens the calm. And with tensions in Europe deepening, it seems that Summerhayes' peaceful days are numbered. For Elizabeth Summer, the lazy quiet of her home has become stifling. A chance meeting with Aiden Kellaway, an architect's assistant, offers the promise of escape.

Postwar Paris is alive with optimism, but lavender keeper Luc Ravens and his love, Lisette, remain haunted by the horrors they have endured. Casting their fate to the winds, they set sail for Australia, hoping to rebuild their lives in a land that's full of promise. But trouble has a way of catching up with them.

The Narrator made this book! Amazing accents and being able to swap in and out of character. This story broke my heart, but made up for it at the end. An amazing second book to 'The Lavender Keeper.' Absolutely loved it!

I loved this novel. Full of intrigue, suspense, and maybe a little sprinkle of romance...
