Elizabeth Buchan garnered both praise and a loyal readership with the bestselling Revenge of the Middle-Aged Woman and The Good Wife Strikes Back. Now her many new fans can discover one of her beloved early novels.
It is the summer of 1929. The Hinton Dysart estate is dying from lack of money, and Kit Dysart, the heir, sees no way out. Then, at his sister’s wedding, he meets the vibrant Daisy Chudleigh and her cousin, the heiress Matty Verrall. In love with Daisy but troubled by his family’s decline, Kit chooses to marry Matty, though neither Kit nor Daisy is able to forget the other. When Matty, growing increasingly unhappy in her troubled, empty marriage, decides to re-create the estate’s garden, she discovers solace and a gift of which she never dreamed. A glorious fusion of love and gardening, Consider the Lily is a classic and poignant novel of love, loss, and, ultimately, a new flowering between the two world wars.
