Ruby and Cat's friendship was forged on an English dockside over sixty years ago when, both fearful, they boarded a ship bound for Australia. It was a friendship that was supposed to last a lifetime but when news of Cat's death reaches Ruby back in London, it comes after a painful estrangement.

Declan has also drifted away from Cat, but he is forced back to his aunt's lavender farm, Benson's Reach, when he learns that he and Ruby are co-beneficiaries.

As these two very different people come together in Margaret River they must learn to trust each other and to deal with the staff and guests. Can the legacy of Benson's Reach triumph over the hurt of the past? Or is Cat's duty-laden legacy simply too much for Ruby and Declan to keep alive?

An interesting story.


a lovely story. Well written. difficult to get into, but the last quarter drew it all together beautifully. It took time to mull over the story afterward.. and that time was well spent. Life often takes us on unexpected journeys, but, until they are explained, or we understand, it is lost on the naive traveler.I really enjoyed this book, as I have enjoyed all Liz Bryski's books.
