ERICA JAMES The Dandelion Years

A gorgeous tale of friendship and love from the Sunday Times bestselling author of Summer at the Lake. Saskia grew up in Ashcombe, a beautiful house in the Suffolk countryside. Its enchanting garden provided a fairy-tale playground of seclusion, a perfect sanctuary to hide from the tragedy which shattered her childhood. Now an adult, Saskia is still living at Ashcombe. She works as a book restorer, tending to the battered books that find their way to her and daydreaming about the people who had once turned their pages. When she discovers a carefully concealed notebook in an old Bible, Saskia finds herself drawn into a heart-rending tale of wartime love . . . Erica James readily strikes up conversation with strangers, hoping to unearth a useful gem for her writing. She is the author of many bestselling novels, including Gardens of Delight which won the Romantic Novel of the Year Award, and her Sunday Times Top 10 bestseller The Queen of New Beginnings.
