Finlay, Linda2018
Books, Manuscripts
From the flower markets of Covent Garden in the 1880s, to the violet farms of Devon, a sweeping historical saga from best-selling author Linda Finlay. Bella has known nothing but luxury and privilege, raised by her uncle in a London townhouse since the death of her mother. But when fortunes change, Bella finds herself forced to abandon her fine dresses and jewellery, and flee to the seldom-mentioned old family violet farm in Devon. Far from London, where acres of swaying violets are harvested and packed in corsets to be sent to the flower markets of the cities, Bella finds herself facing a life of hardship and toil. But in the toughest of times, friendship and love can be found in the most unexpected of places, and soon Bella will uncover a family secret which may reverse her destiny.
