Summary

Saskia watches the lives of others from her eyrie in Lavender Square with a lonely fascination. While the teacher, the recluse, the advertising whiz kid and the African woman and her young son run, rush, dart, and dash, she knows for sure that she will never have anything worth dashing to.

But sometimes all it takes is a little magic to bring people together. And in Lavender Square, where the lavender grows in mysterious abundance and colors the air with a musky sense of love, magic is never very far away.

The neighbours who once passed each other by in detached universes find themselves thrown together when they are obliged to take care of young Patrick Kimba. His mother is seriously ill, and no one knows when or if she is ever coming home. At first they resist the tiresome interruption, until quite by accident Patrick’s dream of becoming a football star and finding his long-lost father becomes theirs, and their lives and heartaches become woven together in a new and unexpected pattern.
