Joy M. Lilleyabout this book: This is a tale of love and loss in a bygone age. The division between rich and poor is dramatically realised.
Out protagonist, a privileged girl from a wealthy background falls in love with a lad from the lower classes.
Their clandestine romance blossoms until tragedy strikes.
It will appeal to adult readers especially women.
The book took approximately 2 years to write. The title came about as result of visiting Sissinghurst castle, in Kent U.K.where the gardens gave rise to not only the title but also one of the book venues.
The cover was chosen for me by my publisher.I didn't find this a hard book to write as everything seemed to fall into place and moreover it was my first novel. Perhaps the ideas I had in my head for so long before putting pen to paper just came tumbling out. The research carried out for the book was immense. Many hours of checking for accuracy were spent along the journey.
I would love for you to read, enjoy and review this book on the Amazon website. It has been likened to a have a similarity with DOWNTON ABBEY.
