General Fiction

Ellie, an artist in her middle age, needs to live her life in a new way after the death of her husband. Feeling fearful but doing it anyway, she enrols on a garden course in Tuscany one spring. Here she begins relationships with fellow students Nerine an eccentric character in her seventies and the much younger Max. Through the teaching of Salvatore the owner of an ancient palazzo who runs the course, Ellie finds that the universal truths, expressed in the Renaissance painting Primavera and the philosophy of Marsilio Ficino, are still potently relevant.


What the critics say:

'What a deeply satisfying ending. It is full of hope, and a sense of rightness ... which is exactly what I for one, want from a book'
Bel Mooney

'Lyrical prose, a good, strong storyline, plenty of soul searching and last minute revelations all add up to an excellent read'
Nottingham Evening Post
