The Wildflowers

book | Fiction | Feb 2018
UK & Comm → Headline Publishing (Ed. Mari Evans)

There's an old wooden chalet on the edge of a golden Dorset beach, hidden away behind the trees. Abandoned by those who went there for years, the only signs of its gilded past and happy memories are the fading black-and-white photographs lining the walls. They show the Shaw family in their heyday, when the house was a mecca for glamorous bohemia and the Shaw children thought they were the luckiest children in the world.

But all that changed, and now the house is empty and unloved. But not forgotten. Because those who are still alive could never forget what happened there and what it once meant to them, even if they don't understand why.

A dark, sweeping, swirling story about a family from the 1940s to the present day, about holiday memories, long-buried secrets and the heartbreak of fractured childhoods. Above all, it's about love.
