    Miranda and David move out of London into a beautiful country house with a magical garden. But Miranda insists on tottering across the wet lawn in kitten heels, David is never there, and the children won't tear themselves away from the telly. Then an enigmatic Frenchman arrives. With the wisdom of nature, he slowly begins to heal the past and the present. But who is he? And what is his secret?

    Story

    A fabulous story, I loved it from start to finish, I couldn't wait to listen to the next bit, what a terrific writer and it was narrated perfectly, although it had a romantic feel to it, it wasn't sloppy or too graphic, the descriptions were divine. I really look forward to listening to the other books written by this great author.

    On the eve of her ninth birthday, unassuming Rose Edelstein, a girl at the periphery of schoolyard games and her distracted parents' attention, bites into her mother's homemade lemon-chocolate cake and discovers she has a magical gift: she can taste her mother's emotions in the cake. She discovers this gift to her horror, for her mother - her cheerful, good-with-crafts, can-do mother - tastes of despair and desperation.

    Story

    Unlike most listeners, I didn't mind the narrator, but maybe that's because I'm from the UK. But as for the content - I just didn't get it, I didn't get what the brother was doing, I see from other reviews that that became clear in the last 10 mins but even going back to the last 10mins, I still didn't get it, and I couldn't be bothered to go back further. I would be pleased to find the answer to that, as for the rest of it, it just seemed that each family member had strange problems.
    Would I recommend it? NO, definitely not. Life is too short to waste 8 hours listening to this!
