Product description

Product Description

Giving up a promising career as an artist, Gemma Oldfield turns her back on her British roots and moves to Los Angeles to be with the woman who has captured her heart. When things don't go as planned, Gemma buries herself in her work as a Hollywood set decorator-all the while clinging to the hope that the passion with her lover can be rekindled. But she must temporarily leave L.A. behind and return to England after her grandmother's unexpected passing. Once there, she discovers shocking secrets she could never have foreseen.

Emily Oldfield, Gemma's beloved Nan, was a simple woman who painted portraits and tended her garden in the small village of Moulton. But Gemma learns that Nan's life was far from simple. When she discovers hundreds of letters written from a mysterious person dating as far back as the 1930s, Gemma embarks upon a quest to understand why her grandmother took so many secrets to her grave.

Gemma's journey to discover the truth leads her to London where she soon realizes that the matriarch's past, if revealed, could destroy the Oldfields. Should she keep these scandalous revelations to herself, or expose them to her family?

Nan is not the only one with a hidden past. Hannah Davis is adjusting to life following a shocking confession from her husband James--a secret he kept hidden for years. But James and Hannah, veterinarians running an animal clinic in London, attempt to carry on as business partners. As a Buddhist, Hannah struggles between allowing the universe to show her the way and scheming of ways to get James to realize that leaving her was the biggest mistake of his life.

Set in the late twentieth century and partially told through letters which span several decades, this story follows these women as they unlock secrets from the past that will change the course of their lives forever.
