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.
About the Author
Di Morrissey is one of the most successful authors Australia has ever produced. She trained as a journalist, working in the media around the world. Her fascination with different countries; their landscape, their cultural, political and environmental issues, forms the inspiration for her novels.
Di is a tireless activist for many causes: opposing large scale development and commercial food chains into Byron Bay NSW, fighting gas and mining intrusion into sacred lands in the Kimberly, and stopping massive and unnecessary power lines intruding into the Manning Valley NSW. Di also established The Golden Land Education Foundation in Myanmar. Di lives in the Manning Valley, NSW.
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.
