Publisher's Summary

In March 1941, Virginia Woolf filled her pockets with stones and drowned herself in England's River Ouse. Her body was found three weeks later. What seemed like a tragic ending at the time was, in fact, just the beginning of a mystery.

Six decades after Virginia Woolf's death, landscape designer Jo Bellamy has come to Sissinghurst Castle for two reasons: to study the celebrated White Garden created by Woolfs lover Vita Sackville-West and to recover from the terrible wound of her grandfathers unexplained suicide. In the shadow of one of England's most famous castles, Jo makes a shocking find: Woolfs last diary, its first entry dated the day after she allegedly killed herself. If authenticated, Jo's discovery could shatter everything historians believe about Woolf's final hours.

But when the Woolf diary is suddenly stolen, Jo's quest to uncover the truth will lead her on a perilous journey into the tumultuous inner life of a literary icon whose connection to the White Garden ultimately proved devastating.

    "Good but not great"

    This is a good story, but the chase is so thin that it gets annoying along with the terrible try at Britishisms. The language is just off, as if the writer is using dialogue she thinks is common but is far from it.

    Ok, if you have nothing better to do on a wet weekend.

    "The White Garden"

    I didn't care for the language and the sexual situations in the story. I couldn't even finish the story. This was not an enjoyable read in my book. Im sorry if you read it an like it.
