Synopsis

Winner of the 1994 Romantic Novelists’ Association Novel of the Year Award, Consider the Lily is a glorious fusion of love and gardening, of family life and coming to terms with loss. A haunting, passionate story played out between three people, it is also a poignant and beautiful novel of England between the wars that propels the reader into its own rich and nostalgic world.
