Three generations, one heartbreaking secret—and the past about to be uncovered …

Jess Penhaligon is on her way to London to receive an award for her botanical painting. Hosting her will be Kate, who gladly welcomes her into her home. Jess’ own family fell apart several years ago, so she is grateful for Kate’s friendliness—and for her close unit of extended family and friends, who embrace Jess just as warmly.

As the group begins reminiscing about their pasts and sharing their stories with Jess, it becomes apparent that her family history may be linked with theirs. Long-buried secrets from past generations are being uncovered, but at what cost have they been kept hidden?

Quotes & Awards

  • The Sea Garden weaves a double spell: Lawrenson steeps her story of the invisible heroes of the French Resistance crossing borders—and here, crossing time—deep in the eerie beauty of the South of France. The result is a marvelous strange fruit: think Graham Greene with a dash of Poe.”

    Sarah Blake, New York Times bestselling author of The Postmistress

  • “Lawrenson writes compassionately and convincingly of the war’s horrors and the ways in which ordinary people become heroes, continuously building the tension toward a never-saw-it-coming convergence of the trio of tales.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “Evocatively written, this book paints the seasons and scenes around the River Tamar on the boundary of Devon and Cornwall and is populated with warm, believable characters whom you’ll sorely miss when you’ve finished reading it.”

    Candis

  • With agile inventiveness and cunning insight, Willett delicately explores the ephemeral nature of time and its effect on love and friendship.”

    Booklist

  • “A satisfying multigenerational novel tying long-ago friends, family, and secret lovers to the present.”

    Kirkus Reviews

About the Author

Marcia Willett’s early life was devoted to the ballet, but her dreams of becoming a ballerina ended when she grew out of the classical proportions then required. She had always loved books, and a family crisis made her take up a new career as a novelist—a decision she has never regretted. She lives in a beautiful, wild part of Devon with her husband, where she loves to be visited by her son and his young family.
