Praise for The Sea Garden

  • THE SEA GARDEN weaves a double spell, and honestly, it got me right from the start. Lawrenson steeps her story of the invisible heroes of the French Resistance crossing borders - and here, crossing time - deep in the eerie beauty of the South of France. The result is a marvellous strange fruit: think Graham Greene served up with a dash of Poe

  • A superbly crafted novel that deserves to be called the new CAPTAIN CORELLI or perhaps the new BIRDSONG - DAILY MAIL

  • Evocative and beautifully written

  • Time-slip novels are tricky to get right and this one nails it - SHE

  • Deborah Lawrenson's new novel, a modern Gothic tale set in the lavender-scented landscape of Provence, serves up an escapist mix of mystery, romance and murder - WALL STREET JOURNAL
