by Rhys Bowen
Rhys Bowen is well known and loved by mystery readers for her Molly Murphy and Royal Spyness series. She has also begun writing a number of historical novels. The Victory Garden is, I think, the second of these.
The story is set during WWI. A young woman meets a cheeky Australian pilot. What will happen in their relationship and how will it impact Emily’s life?
During the war, Emily becomes a land girl. She finds a journal that intrigues her with the powerful properties of herbs. How will this discovery impact her life moving forward?
From this brief outline, the talented Ms. Bowen weaves her story. If you are a fan of the author, consider giving this or another of her standalone novels a try.
