Lavender Morning: A Novel is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Jocelyn Minton is a woman torn between two worlds. Her mother grew up attending private schools and afternoon teas, but she married the local handyman. After her mother died when Joce was only five years old, her father remarried into his own class, and Joce became an outsider -- until she met Edilean Harcourt. Although she was sixty years Joce''s senior, Miss Edi was a kindred soul who understood her like no one else ever had.

When Miss Edi passes away, she leaves Joce all her worldly possessions, including an eighteenth-century house and a letter with clues to a mystery that began in 1941. In the letter, Miss Edi also mentions that she has found the perfect man for Joce -- a handsome young lawyer. Joce is shocked to learn that the mystery, the house, and the future love of her life are all in Edilean, a small town in Virginia that Miss Edi never told her about. Hurt that the woman who meant so much to her kept so many secrets, Jocelyn moves to this tight-knit village in an attempt to understand the legacy that has been left to her. As she begins to dig into Miss Edi''s mystery, she soon discovers some shocking surprises about her family''s history and her own future -- and she meets a man with his own mysterious past.

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.
