The Last Camellia

Sarah Jio

In 1940, the last surviving specimen of a camellia plant known as the Middlebury Pink lies secreted away on an English country estate. Flora, an amateur American botanist, is contracted by an international ring of flower thieves to acquire the bloom. More than half a century later, garden designer Addison takes up residence at the manor with her husband, Rex. A recently discovered old gardener's notebook hints at dark acts ingeniously concealed. If the danger that Flora once faced remains alive, will Addison share her fate? An intoxicating read from the author of Blackberry Winter (2012).
