When Victoria and Guy Blakeney-Jones inherit the tiny Cornish island of Trelise, they look on the restoration of the island's famous garden as a wonderful challenge. And the garden, established by Guy's ancestor Joshua Jones in 1847, is certainly unusual, its construction reflecting a bizarre and disturbing vision. But as restoration gets underway, Victoria begins to realize what else the overgrown terraces are hiding, when a skeleton is uncovered. Sensing an intriguing mystery, Victoria begins to unravel a tormented family history that reaches back through five generations - and could yet shatter the island's idyllic calm.

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.
