Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The past crashes across all four generations of this now extended family which we first met in The Flowers of the Field and gathered more about in A Flower That’s Free, but fear not, for you will thoroughly enjoy this without knowledge of the past two books. We are given what backstory we need so all is tidied up. There are some great characters, the genteel middle-class elegance nicely portrayed and the whole ups and downs of the family a joy to be part of.

If you like Sarah Harrison you might also like to read books by Penny Vincenzi, Kate Furnivall and Kate Morton.

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. This sensitive, evocative story follows the changing fortunes of the Tennant, Kingsley, and Drake families. A saga that began in the mud-filled trenches of the First World War, it is a powerful and moving tale of family loyalties, loves and betrayals through the years. Now a great-grandmother, Kate Drake has found peace after a life of upheaval. When a long-buried secret from the past threatens the fragile family peace, old wounds are reopened, bonds are tested, and second chances are offered, and new dangers and new loves must be negotiated.

Synopsis

The Wildflower Path by Sarah Harrison

All families have secrets and many are taken to the grave, but those that aren't can return, generations later, with devastating consequences...For Kate Drake, now a great-grandmother, marriage and family brought peace after years of restless uncertainty. Now, watching her own grown-up children, it seems the world is a no less complicated place. Stella, her fiercely independent daughter, and Will, her handsome, self-indulgent son, have challenges of their own to face, while her granddaughter, Evie, is bringing up a son on her own. But when a secret from the past casts its shadow across four generations of the family, a spoiled war veteran gets a second chance, a stubbornly independent woman opens herself to love, and an older one rediscovers it, while a young boy begins to understand the complexities of adult life.

Reviews

'Her highly-detailed perspicacious style, full of insight and gentle humour, was a revelation'- Wendy Holden, DAILY MAIL

'A secret from the past casts its shadow across all four generations of the family. This saga completes the Flowers Trilogy that began with million-copy bestseller The Flowers of the Field followed by A Flower That's Free.'
