A compelling story of two remarkable women connected across the decades by the men who love them... and the magic of a place called Zanana.

Kate, a strong-willed heiress determined to defy Edwardian convention, must pay the ultimate price to keep the home she loves so much...

Odette, an independent and idealistic young journalist, is caught in a fierce battle to save Zanana from ruthless developers...

Years apart yet inextricably linked by Zanana, the magnificent mansion they both love, these two striking women prove they are not afraid to fight for what they believe in. From turn-of-the-century India to contemporary Sydney, The Last Rose of Summer is an epic story of love, possession and intrigue.

      Comments about The Last Rose of Summer:

      I wonder whether the story had to be so sad but I understood by the end. It is tragic and dramatic set in the early Sydney.
