The Garden of Lost and Found

The Garden of Lost and Found

‘I can’t remember the last time I was so enthralled and affected by a story and its characters’ Red

‘My top book of 2019’ Dinah Jeffries

‘If you are reading this letter it means the sketch has been sold … Nightingale House is now yours. It has long concerned me that you do not know the truth of it all and that at last I must right a wrong.’

England, 1918. To the millions around the world who queued to see it, ‘The Garden of Lost and Found’ is an exquisite painting of childhood innocence.

To Liddy, whose children play in that painted garden, it is a portrait of all she has lost. For her great-grand daughter Juliet, it’s an inheritance of secrets and loss which she must try to understand.

And Ned Horner, the genius who painted it? He only wanted to create a refuge from the outside world… but in so doing set his family on their path of destruction.

The unputdownable new novel from Sunday Times bestseller Harriet Evans is a tale of love at its most powerful and of family bonds tested to the limit, 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.
