9780001049413: Consider the Lily

A miserable childhood had left Matty Verral introverted and awkward, lacking all the vivacious beauty that made her cousin, Daisy Chudleigh, such a social success. Both of them met Kit Dysart for the first time at his sister’s wedding; both of them fell in love. But only Matty, with her wealth, could give Kit his heart’s desire. Kit accepted her bargain and then, unable to stop himself, hurt her unbearably. In her pain, Matty turned to the garden that had been left to wither and die and, among its ghosts, began to build a life for herself…

Consider the Lily is a powerful and evocative tale of love and longing, truth and betrayal and won its author a major literary award.

Review:

'A gorgeously well-written tale: funny, sad and sophisticated' -- Independent

'Excellent . . . strong imaginative power . . . wonderful sense of atmosphere' -- Joanna Trollope

From the Author:

Why I wrote this book
I wanted to explore a theme of personal loss, set against a backdrop of national loss i.e. the decades after the Great War. It is the story of a wife whose unhappiness drives her to take up gardening and thus triggers a process of healing and new understanding which, in the end, brings her what she craves. It was also an opportunity to touch on the intriguing aspects of flowers and plants, particularly the ones that we prize greatly, the lily and the rose.
