Travel Guide

Boscawen -a very Cornish name. It’s name is evocative of the secrets and history it hides away in each and every brick. This house has history – there is even traces of characters past .

The gardens of this house are important – the flora and fauna of the area are evocative and stunning in their colour and their fragrance which drifts from the page.

The flowers of Cornwall

Flowers and gardens play an important role in this novel. It’s as if the flowers of Cornwall each has their secret to share and as they shift in the breeze, one more part of the puzzle falls into place. Plants which grew in the past and those which flourish there now. Plants, fragrances and meanings which reveal a hidden past. Victoria feels a unique connection to her childhood home and her garden is vital to her on so many levels. She also has roots here just like the flowers she loves. One tree seems to evoke memories of fairies and folklore.

Under the Cornish sky, the magic of Cornwall enchants and bewitches.
