When Victoria and Guy Blakeney-Jones inherit the tiny Cornish island of Trelise, it looks as if they have lucked into an idyll. The sub-tropical Priory gardens - laid out in 1845 on the site of an ancient monastery by Guy's ancestor, the herbalist Joshua Jones - await restoration to their former splendor. As work proceeds, a skeleton with a fractured skull is unearthed in the Sea Garden. With the help of Trelise's library, letters and diaries, Victoria begins a search for the skeleton's identity. But as she digs deeper into the tormented history of five generations of Joneses, she sheds light on buried secrets: secrets that germinate into a nightmare.

Better that I expected. There was a good mystery and interesting characters. It was also a story of the generations that have lived on Trelise and developed it. Warts and all. Anyone into boating on the open sea or gardening and plants would even enjoy it more. Alot of details about those subjects as they accurred in the story.
