• « Il y a deux sortes de femmes : celles qui agissent, et celles qui se laissent faire. Essaie de faire partie de la première catégorie. »
    Glasgow, 1929
    Beattie Blaxland avait des rêves. De grands rêves. Elle rêvait d'une vie remplie de mode et d'étoffes. Ce dont elle n'avait jamais rêvé, c'était de tomber enceinte de son amant, un homme marié, à la veille de son dix-neuvième anniversaire.
    Londres, 2009
    Emma Blaxland-Hunter vivait son rêve. Danseuse étoile au Ballet de Londres, elle avait tout... jusqu'au jour où elle a tout perdu.
    Des décennies les séparent mais les deux femmes devront trouver la force de reconstruire leur vie. Un héritage les mènera au coeur des terres australiennes, à Wildflower Hill, la colline aux fleurs sauvages, là où une femme peut apprendre à se relever et découvrir ce qu'elle veut vraiment.

  • In 1929, Beattie Blaxland had dreams. Big dreams. She dreamed of a life of fashion and fabrics. One thing she never dreamed was that she would find herself pregnant to her married lover, just before her nineteenth birthday. In 2009, Emma Blaxland-Hunter was living her dream. A prima ballerina with the London Ballet, she had everything... Until the moment she lost it all. Separated by decades, both women must find the strength to rebuild their lives. A legacy from one to the other will lead to Wildflower Hill, a place where a woman can learn to stand alone long enough to realise what she really wants.

  • 1901: Isabella Winterbourne has suffered the worst loss a woman can know, and can no longer bear her husband nor his oppressive upper-class family. On a voyage between London and Sydney to accompany a priceless gift to the Australian parliament, Isabella is the sole survivor of a shipwreck off the sun-drenched Queensland coast. But in this strange new place, she finds she cannot escape her past quite as easily as she'd hoped. 2011: A woman returns from Paris to her beachside hometown to reconcile with her sister. But she, too, has a past that is hard to escape, and her sister is not in a mood to forgive her. Strange noises at night and activity at the abandoned lighthouse raise her curiosity, and she finds herself investigating a century-old town mystery.
