**Description from Amazon: Despite the “crinkled pink petals strewn in the path of those who would have preferred
red,” four generations of Eliots have survived the War and are moving forward.
The family’s remarkable matriarch Lucilla is still with them, though she’s facing
the dark night of the soul.
All is turned on its head with the arrival of Sebastian, another survivor of WWII. He
has a story far more painful than any of the Eliots. While with them, he wrestles with
questions about his own disconnected existence.
They all yearn, in their own ways, to glimpse the high price of love. And through this
they are ultimately able to love each other and God more fully.
“”I can think of few authors whose writing I enjoy more than those of Elizabeth
Goudge. She has the rare ability to express herself unforgettably and is able
to transport you into another world and time, in which you find yourself immensely
enriched and entertained.””
