Inhaltsangabe: When California winemaker Jamie Gibson inherits Wickersham Priory, she moves to England to cultivate a new life on the massive 200-acre estate. But the once-grand gardens are now in disrepair, their overgrowth obscuring pathways and erasing buildings. Jamie vows to restore the gardens in honor of her benefactor, who happens to be a complete stranger.
She hires Lawrence Kingston, a retired professor of botany, to reproduce the gardens from their heyday. Unable to tame his curiosity, Lawrence begins investigating why Jamie was named heir to this vast fortune. His interest grows when he discovers the old Wickersham well that now holds human bones--and the truth of a long-ago murder.
Kingston's meddling has tilled up the past, but when workers on their project keep turning up dead, he and Jamie must escape their present thorny situation?or they too risk being buried amidst the garden's secrets.

Inhaltsangabe: Hidden within the derelict gardens of abandoned Wickersham Priory, a deadly secret is waiting. But when an unsuspecting young Californian named Jamie Gibson finds herself the new owner of the estate, through a surprise bequest from a total stranger---the secret begins to stir.
            Jamie, fired with enthusiasm to restore the gardens to their 1930s glory, seeks the help of Lawrence Kingston, a retired professor of botany, eccentric bon viveur, and amateur sleuth. Lawrence soon unearths an old chapel, which leads to an ancient Healing Well, which in turn yields a human skeleton. And as the police pursue their inquiries, Kingston begins his own investigation---following a baffling trail of clues that wind down through the centuries, from the battlegrounds of World War II to the depths of the Middle Ages.
            It is a trail marked by misadventure, revenge, compassion, and murder when finally Kingston unlocks the secret of Wickersham Priory, he and Jamie must confront a reckoning that neither of them could have ever imagined.
            As with the highly acclaimed The Blue Rose, Eglin brings his botanical and literary skill to this new mystery.
