The Garden House : a sweeping story about family and buried secrets set in Devon Hardback



'A warm and engaging read.' Trisha AshleyAfter the death of her father, El moves into his home just outside Tavistock in Devon.

Fresh out of university and dangling on the precipice of adulthood she questions what it is she really wants from life.

Although her childhood friend, Will, is there to help her through her grief she soon realises there were things her father was hiding from her... Jules is also mourning Martin, but they thought best to keep their relationship secret, she must now grieve entirely alone.

All she has to remember her love are the memories of their time spent at a beautiful community garden and teashop nearby.

The Garden House is where they met, fell in love and where their secret affair will inevitably be uncovered.

As El and Will begin to piece together her father's secrets they bring them closer and closer to both Jules and a truth that is difficult to face. Praise for Marcia Willett:'A beautifully woven tale of families and their secrets...' Liz Fenwick, bestselling author of The Cornish House'Riveting, moving and utterly feel-good.'
