Description

Hothouse Flower FROM THE NUMBER ONE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE PEARL SISTER AND THE OLIVE TREE

A heart-rending page turner which sweeps from war-torn Europe to Thailand and back again . . .

As a child, Julia Forrester would linger in the hothouse of Wharton Park estate, where exotic flowers tended by her grandfather blossomed and faded with the seasons.

Now, recovering from a family tragedy, she once more seeks comfort at Wharton Park, newly inherited by Kit Crawford, a charismatic man with a sad story of his own. But when a years-old diary is found during renovation work, the pair turn to Julia's grandmother to hear the truth about the love affair that turned Wharton Park's fortunes sour . . .

And so Julia is plunged back in time, to the world of Olivia and Harry Crawford, a young couple torn apart by the Second World War - and whose fragile marriage is destined to affect the happiness of generations to come, including Julia's own.

Outside the UK, this book is published under the title The Orchid House

    Lovely book y Took me a few chapters to get into it but once I did I was hooked. Beautifully written and lovely vibrant characters. The end was slightly cheesy and predictable but I can't hold that against a really great and well written story.

    I had tears flowing down my cheeks but I could not put it down. Brilliant! (Though I must also say it was a true romantic fantasy rather than a plot that was wholly likely, but who cares...it was a great read.)
