From the bestselling author of The Tuscan Child
comes a beautiful and heart-rending novel of a womanâ€™s love
and sacrifice during the First World War.
As the Great War continues to take its toll, headstrong
twenty-one-year-old Emily Bryce is determined to contribute
to the war effort. She is convinced by a cheeky and handsome
Australian pilot that she can do more, and it is not long
before she falls in love with him and accepts his proposal
When he is sent back to the front, Emily volunteers as a
"land girl," tending to the neglected grounds of a large
Devonshire estate. Itâ€™s here that Emily discovers the
long-forgotten journals of a medicine woman who devoted her
life to her herbal garden. The journals inspire Emily, and
in the wake of devastating news, they are her saving grace.
Emilyâ€™s lover has not only died a hero but has left her
terrifiedâ€”and with child. Since no one knows that Emily was
never married, she adopts the charade of a war widow.
As Emily learns more about the volatile power of healing
with herbs, the found journals will bring her to the brink
of disaster, but may open a path to her destiny.
