    Book details

A captivating tale of forbidden passion and wartime friendship from the bestselling author of THE WILLOW POOL and ONE SUMMER AT DEER’S LEAP.

It’s 1940 and Britain expects daily to be invaded, but the isolated Yorkshire hamlet of Nun Ainsty remains relatively untouched. That is until the Army arrives and everything is turned upside down, especially for Lorna Hatherwood.

Married to a man ten years her senior, Lorna’s life has lacked excitement, but when she volunteers to read to blind soldiers at the nearby Manor, she cannot imagine how much it will suddenly change.

There, she meets handsome medical officer Ewan MacMillan and as they get increasingly close, Lorna realizes it could spell disaster for them both.

Life takes another unexpected turn with the arrival of Land Girl, Ness Nightingale, who is billeted with Lorna. Ness is trying to forget a disastrous love affair, but she soon meets Mick Hardie, a conscientious objector, and has to remind herself that she had vowed never to trust another man…

    Purchased to finish reading the family saga. Arrived promptly and in good condition

    I love all of Elgin's books and although this one lacks some of the excitement and twists of her other books like 'One Summer at Deer's Leap' and 'All the Sweet Promises' I still loved the characters and the plot. Sometimes I thought this sounds all too familiar especially Ursula's ghost but I really didn't care. It served it's purpose and lets face it these books are as close as some of us actually get to 'real' romance. Most couples today wouldn't know real romance if it bit them. These books show that although in some relationships nothing was perfect, in others they knew how to really love and respect one another.The books are easy going, romantic, informative and they do draw you into the story as all good books should. They will never be literary masterpieces and that suits me fine. It's a terrible shame that this author won't be able to keep these books coming

    I am a big fan of Elizabeth Elgin, so I couldn't wait for her lastest book to arrive. But, after reading "A Scent of Lavender" I have to admitt that I'm a little disappointed. The story its self about life in a small British town and how the war changes two women. One working as a Land Girl and the another a life long resident was interesting. But parts the book seem to drag and I was waiting for Ms. Elgin to make her point, so the story would move on.I would read more by Ms. Elgin in the future, but overall "A Scent of Lavender" was not one of her better books.

    I love Elgins books, she has great characters and stories. This new book is good and has her usual great love story.However this is not the best of her books and was fairly predictiable which is unsual as her books usually have a twist towards the end.However it is very readable and enjoyable!

    I am afraid to say that I was very disappointed by this book, after reading the fabulous All the sweet promises I anticipated another great read but this was not the case. Although the characters in the book are strong, I found the storyline to drift at times and on many occasions I became a little bored. I doubt that I will read this book again and have to say I would give it a miss. Not what I expected at all

    I found this book very enjoyable for a lazy day in the sun. Once started it was hard to put down. The Characters were believable and likeable. Yes a thoroughly good read. I look forward to reading the other books by the same author that I have just received.

    What a truly lovely read. Not too light nor too heavy, a believable insight into a hard time in life. Take it on holiday with you, you won't regret it.
