The Garden of Lost and Found: The NEW heart-breaking epic from the Sunday Times bestseller

Harriet Evans

6 Reviews

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

The new spellbinding novel from Sunday Times bestselling author of A PLACE FOR US, THE BUTTERFLY SUMMER and THE WILDFLOWERS.

1919: Sir Edward Horner, the most celebrated artist of his day, destroys his world-famous painting, THE LITTLE BIRDS, shortly before his death. But why?

The new novel by Sunday Times bestseller Harriet Evans is the unputdownable tale of a family torn apart and the house they lived in. Harriet writes the most delicious, epic stories from the heart since Maeve Binchy and Kate Morton.

Millions around the world once queued up to see the painting that captured a perfect moment: Horner's two children, John and Eliza, playing in the garden of their magical, mysterious Nightingale House, the family home he and his wife created deep in the heart of the English countryside.

But such moments cannot last for ever.

Almost a century later, Horner's great-granddaughter Juliet inherits Nightingale House, now weighed down with unspoken secrets. Why would Ned Horner destroy The Little Birds - the thing he loved best? And can art historian Juliet untangle the web of passion and tragedy in his life and her own to discover the answer?
