Who would choose to destroy what they love the most?

Nightingale House, 1919.

Liddy Horner discovers her husband, the world-famous artist Sir Edward Horner, burning his best-known painting The Garden of Lost and Found days before his sudden death.

Nightingale House was the Horner family’s beloved home – a gem of design created to inspire happiness – and it was here Ned painted The Garden of Lost and Found, capturing his children on a perfect day, playing in the rambling Eden he and Liddy made for them.

One magical moment. Before it all came tumbling down…

When Ned and Liddy’s great-granddaughter Juliet is sent the key to Nightingale House, she opens the door onto a forgotten world. The house holds its mysteries close but she is in search of answers.

Something shattered this corner of paradise. But what?

Lose yourself in this unputdownable tale of the enduring power of family love, told by three generations of extraordinary women. . .

Evans is the reigning queen of the big house family saga and her latest, an addictive tale of love, art, loss and long-held secrets centring around an artist's inexplicable destruction of his most famous painting, is her best yet. The sort of book that has you ignoring family and friends long into the night
