Today I am delighted to share with you the cover of the new book by Harriet Evans, The Wildflowers, it's intriguing and beautiful at the same time, don't you think?
The Wildflowers is the new one, and it is a real landmark for Harrie, the Sunday Times bestselling author, as it is her 10th novel – it is satisfyingly coastal, evocative, and beautifully layered. It’s out in May, and follows one family (the Wildflowers) across three generations, and is set between the golden age of theatre in London, and an old family home by the sea in Dorset.
If you want to know more about the book, this is the prologue to make you want to read it right now and can pre-order it on Amazon!
Tony and Althea Wilde. Glamorous, argumentative... adulterous to the core.
They were my parents, actors known by everyone. They gave our lives love and colour in a house by the sea - the house that sheltered my orphaned father when he was a boy.
But the summer Mads arrived changed everything. She too had been abandoned and my father understood why. We Wildflowers took her in.
My father was my hero, he gave us a golden childhood, but the past was always going to catch up with him ... it comes for us all, sooner or later.
This is my story. I am Cordelia Wilde. A singer without a voice. A daughter without a father. Let me take you inside.
