'Enchanted places have the power to change us,to germinate that tiny seed of happiness, avarice or desire that we are so careful to conceal.' Lily Devereaux faces a dilemma. Should she rebuild her marriage to Tom or walk away from it? Tom also has to choose. His mother, Maud, has died, and his elder brother, Chris, wants to sell her cottage, The Boathouse, the scene of their magical childhood summers. His younger brother, Cameron, wants them to keep it. And Dora Savage, an old family friend, must decide whether the Devereauxs should finally know the truth about Maud's marriage to their father, Bertie, forged in the melting pot of the 1950s and 60s. Do love, forgiveness and compromise change over fifty years? The answers lie down at The Boathouse, where the waves and wildflowers ripple over the bones of a dangerous family secret.
