Publisher's Summary

Postwar Paris is alive with optimism, but lavender keeper Luc Ravens and his love, Lisette, remain haunted by the horrors they have endured. Casting their fate to the winds, they set sail for Australia, hoping to rebuild their lives in a land that's full of promise. But trouble has a way of catching up with them.

When an eager young law student discovers a secret family connection with the Ravens on the other side of the world, he finds himself holding the key to his own future and to Luc's troubled past. Luc must return to France to fulfil the promises by which he has been bound - only then can he lay to rest the ghosts of years gone by so that they all might live and love again.

Narrator

The Narrator made this book! Amazing accents and being able to swap in and out of character. This story broke my heart, but made up for it at the end. An amazing second book to 'The Lavender Keeper.' Absolutely loved it!

lavender is great!! a personal favorite

loved the story
narrator wasn't able to alter voice adequately and sometimes confusing as to who was talking, but a gentle voice nonetheless which is what the story needed. loved and hated the relevant characters equally...well depicted.
scenery and descriptions were (cannot claim accurate as I haven't been to any of the places) elaborately and creatively both beautiful and grotesque respectively.
love Fionas writing and stories...looking forward to getting through all her novels.
Thank you to all who aided and contributed to her great accomplishment.

Gripping story

This well written story holds one's interest as it weaves together the history of multiple characters through time and various geographical settings.
Unfortunately I found the narrator's "sing -song" phrasing detracted from the prose
