MetadataShow full item record
Ruby and Cat's friendship was forged on an English dockside sixty years ago when, as terrified children, they were shipped off to Australia. It was a friendship that was supposed to last a lifetime but when news of Cat's death reaches Ruby in London, it comes after years of estrangement. Declan too has drifted away from Cat but is forced back to her lavendar farm, Benson's Reach, by the terms of her will. He turns to his troubled friend Alice, who is desperate for a refuge. Can the magic of Benson's Reach triumph over the hurt of the past? Or is Cat's duty-laden legacy simply too much for Ruby and Declan to keep alive?" - Back cover.
