Jocelyn Minton is a woman torn between two worlds. Her mother grew up in a world of private schools and afternoon tea, but she married the local handyman. After her mother died when Joce was 5, her father remarried into his own class, and Joce was an outsider-- until she met Miss Edi, 60 years older than she was, but a kindred soul. When Miss Edi dies, she leaves Jocelyn all her worldly possessions, which includes clues to a mystery that started in 1941, set in a small town in Virginia that Joce had never heard of. But, because of her benefactor''s notorious past, the townspeople know who Joce is, and they''ve plotted out her entire future, including who she is meant to marry. But Jocelyn has her own ideas about men and secrets that no one wants revealed.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent, Easy Read A wonderful romance novel of how the unexpected becomes reality
Date published: 2009-12-17
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable I am long admirer of Jude Deveraux -- especially her historical novels. However, her recent novels have been quite good -- not complex but a relaxing read with easy dialogue. Lavender Morning is the first of a new series -- a large part of this book was clearly the background set up. The story sets place in a small town with a "set up" situation with the main characters, Joce and Luke--I found the romance rushed but this may due to all the details required in explaining how all the characters inter-twine. Ms Deveraux weaves in historical piece (long lost love) that's enjoyable. There are two other female characters which I believe will be the subject of future books. Wait for the paperback -- it's an entertaining read.
