From the author of the international bestseller, Hothouse Flower, Lucinda Riley's The Light Behind the Window is a breathtaking and intense story of love, war and, above all, forgiveness. The present: Emilie de la Martiniéres has always fought against her aristocratic background, but after the death of her glamorous, distant mother, she finds herself alone in the world and sole inheritor of her grand childhood home in the south of France. An old notebook of poems leads her in search of the mysterious and beautiful Sophia, whose tragic love affair changed the course of her family history. As Emilie unravels the story, she too embarks on her own journey of discovery, realizing that the château may provide clues to her own difficult past and finally unlock the future. The past: London 1943. A young office clerk, Constance Carruthers, is drafted into the SOE, arriving in occupied Paris during the climax of the conflict. Separated from her contact in her very first hours in France, she stumbles into the heart of a wealthy family who are caught up in a deadly game of secrets and lies. Forced to surrender her identity and all ties to her homeland and her beloved husband, Constance finds herself drawn into a complex web of deception, the repercussions of which will affect generations to come. ** Note to readers: In the US, this book is published under the title The Lavender Garden. **

Haunted by terrifying nightmares and a mysterious prophecy, a young man embarks on a 3,000-mile trek through the African bush. From Victoria Falls at night during a lunar rainbow to the great African savanna stampeding with wildebeest to the evocative Serengeti with Mt. Kilimanjaro rising with the dawn, The Light Behind Blue Circles captures some of Africa's most iconic scenery. This is a ghost story--it's about that rumble in your stomach when adrenaline surges. It's that feeling you get when you stand in the dark and hear an animal growling from only feet away, or sense there's someone else in a gloomy room. Although this fictional story has characters that are Maasai, it's not about their culture as much as a web that several Maasai and a Seer get drawn into, along with several travelers. Start reading, and you'll never look at Africa the same again.
