As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
This book came out in 2016, and this is a fiction book.
In this book, Martine writes a thrilling historical novel set in Manchester in 1787. The book incorporates recipes, mystery, secrets, and conflict between two naïve young women named Grace and Mary.
This book was Martine’s second book titled after a garden flower - her debut novel was the culinary-themed An Appetite for Violets.
When Martine isn’t writing books, she’s an amateur cook who won the Merchant Gourmet Recipe Challenge and was a former Dessert Champion. Hence, the recipes in her books are amazing and a tasty treat to accompany her historical research.
This book is 464 pages of revenge, rogues, recipes, and riveting plot points.
