'A gorgeous story of family and secrets and the redemptive power of love.' Kate Morton, bestselling author of THE DISTANT HOURS and THE FORGOTTEN GARDEN
From the class divisions of depression-era Glagow, to the rolling pastures of a rural Tasmanian sheep farm. An unforgettable story of passion, love, secrets and loss.
Beattie: Glasgow, 1929
Beattie Blaxland had dreams. Big dreams. She dreamed of a life of fashion and fabrics. One thing she never dreamed was that she would find herself pregnant to her married lover, just before her nineteenth birthday.
Emma: London, 2009
Emma Blaxland-Hunter was living her dream. A prima ballerina with the London Ballet, she had everything ... until the moment she lost it all.
Separated by decades, both women must find the strength to rebuild their lives. A legacy from one to the other will lead to Wildflower Hill, a place where a woman can learn to stand alone long enough to realise what she really wants.
