A magical, utterly delicious debut that will cast its charm over everyone who loved Chocolat or Fried Green Tomatoes. Be enchanted by a delicious international bestseller
Welcome to Bascom, North Carolina, where it seems that everyone has a story to tell about the Waverley women. The house that s been in the family for generations, the walled garden that mysteriously blooms year round, the rumours of dangerous loves and tragic passions. Every Waverley woman is somehow touched by magic.
Claire has always clung to the Waverleys roots, tending the enchanted soil in the family garden from which she makes her sought-after delicacies famed and feared for their curious effects. She has everything she thinks she needs until one day she waked to find a stranger has moved in next door and a tendril of ivy has crept into her garden...
Claire s carefully tended life is about to run gloriously out of control.
