In March 1941, Virginia Woolf filled her pockets with
stones and drowned herself in Englandâ€™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 Woolfâ€™s
death, landscape designer Jo Bellamy has come to
Sissinghurst Castle for two reasons: to study the
celebrated White Garden created by Woolfâ€™s lover Vita
Sackville-West and to recover from the terrible wound of
her grandfatherâ€™s unexplained suicide. In the shadow of
one of Englandâ€™s most famous castles, Jo makes a shocking
find: Woolfâ€™s last diary, its first entry dated the day
after she allegedly killed herself.If authenticated, Joâ€™s
discovery could shatter everything historians believe
about Woolfâ€™s final hours. But when the Woolf diary is
suddenly stolen, Joâ€™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. Rich with historical
detail, The White Garden is an enthralling novel of
literary suspense that explores the many ways the past
haunts the presentâ€“and the dark secrets that lurk beneath
the surface of the most carefully tended garden.
