From the south coast of England to the rugged farmland of northern Tasmania and the lively streets of postwar Paris, this is an extraordinary story of courage, determination and everlasting love from the internationally bestselling author of The Lavender Keeper.

At the end of the Second World War, Luc and Lisette Ravens have somehow survived their time as a French resistance fighter and a British spy. Haunted by the horrors they have seen, instead of going home to Provence, they cast their fate to the winds and set sail for Australia, hoping to rebuild their lives planting lavender fields in a land that's full of promise.

But the past cannot be evaded so simply. When a Swiss law student learns a confronting truth that connects his family with the Ravens on the other side of the world, he finds himself holding the key to his own future, and to Luc's troubled past.

Luc must return to France to fulfil the promises by which he has been bound – to his beloved Lisette, to his family, and to the one man responsible for ripping so much from his life. Luc must lay to rest the ghosts of years gone by so that they all might live and love again.

        A very interesting sequel to the Lavender Keeper written by the same author. A really good read, and you learn a lot about other countries and their customs as well
