    Description

    From the bestselling author of The Moonlit Garden comes the sweeping, romantic tale of one woman's quest across two continents and one hundred years of history to unearth her family's deepest secret.

    Diana Wagenbach is the sole survivor in a withering family tree fraught with secrets. When the first in a trail of clues is handed down to Diana by her great-aunt on her deathbed, along with a plea to assuage their family's guilt by revealing all, Diana obliges. She follows the clues - a picture here, a letter there, a pressed frangipani flower in a book - that carry her away from her philandering husband in Berlin to a charming manor in England and all the way to a tea plantation in Sri Lanka.

    Diana unravels the dramatic tale of her great-great-grandmother, Grace Tremayne, with the aid of Jonathan Singh, a local historian and writer - and someone with whom she feels a deep bond that sparks into romance. As Grace's tragic past in exotic colonial Ceylon is revealed and the family's sins come to light, Diana finds inspiration in her ancestor's courage and begins to rethink what happiness - and love - is worth, and how the surest route to peace is in setting the truth free.

    Loved this book!!!

    This was a gem of a book that came up under romance, of which there was certainly plenty of, but it was also a genealogical mystery and a sweeping backward looking family saga as well. Beautifully written with sights and sounds and smells described as the dialogue and characters thoughts moved the story along such that the balance was automatic. I hope to read more books by this author!!!

    Fly Away from this Book!

    Though the idea of a secret make the opening if the book enticing, it declines soon after chapter three and never recovers. I only continued because it was a book club reading, but I just wanted it to be over. At last it was. I will be returning this book to audible because they are awesome and allow me to rerun a book simply because I didn't like it!

    Boring

    The description of this book was intriguing. However, I have never been so bored by tedious details and a story that was so hard to follow.

    Beautiful story

    I really enjoyed the story and the details, but always find it hard to hear the hardships and terrible treatment of the natives, and the women and girls in the past. How strong they all had to be to endure the degrading circumstances they were expected to accept.
