The French Gardener

Perhaps every marriage, every family, needs

Dee and David move out of London into a beautiful country house with a magical garden.  But Dee insists on tottering across the wet lawn in kitten heels, David is never there, and the children won’t tear themselves away from the telly. 

Then an enigmatic Frenchman arrives.  With the wisdom of nature he slowly begins to heal the past and the present.   But who is he?  His secret lies in the deepest recesses of the garden, for a garden, like love itself, can restore the human spirit not just season after season, but generation after generation.

Santa Montefiore’s latest novel marks a new departure for this gifted writer.  It celebrates the seductive beauty of the English countryside and the restorative powers of nature.  Best of all, it offers the reader an epic love story at the heart of a novel of family life and the conflict between duty and desire.
