Summary "From the bestselling author of The Tuscan Child comes a beautiful and heart-rending novel of a woman's love and sacrifice during the First World War"-- Provided by publisher.
As the Great War continues to take its toll, Emily Bryce is determined to contribute to the war effort. Convinced by a cheeky and handsome Australian pilot that she can do more, she soon falls in love with him and accepts his proposal of marriage. When he is sent back to the front, Emily volunteers as a "land girl," tending to the neglected grounds of a large Devonshire estate. It's here that Emily discovers the long-forgotten journals of a medicine woman who devoted her life to her herbal garden. The journals inspire Emily, and in the wake of devastating news, they are her saving grace: Emily's lover died a hero-- but left her with child. Adopting the charade of a war widow, and pursuing the power of healing with herbs, Emily follows a path to her destiny. -- adapted from back cover
