1940, England: ‘I promise we will find each other again. I will leave you a message,’ she said, ‘here, in our secret garden.’ But outside the garden walls a war was raging, and it was only a matter of time before they would have to risk everything for love…
Now, England: When Laura moves to Norfolk to restore a beautiful garden in the grounds of a stately home, she sees it as an opportunity for a new start, after her heart was broken by the man she thought she would spend eternity with.
But the garden has secrets within its walls. And when she finds a box buried under the weeping willow tree, she is spellbound by its contents – a key and a cryptic note.
Laura doesn’t yet realise it but, clutched in her hand, she has the first fragment of a love story. A story about a seemingly quiet, beautiful land girl and the man she fell in love with. About a wartime secret that stretched across Europe and has remained hidden until now. And about a love story that two people made the ultimate sacrifice for, which will change Laura’s own life forever.
All she has to do is follow the path…
A heart-breaking, unforgettable and powerful story about love, wartime secrets, and betrayal. Perfect for fans of Rhys Bowen’s The Victory Garden and Kristin Hannah’s The Nightingale.
