In 2016, fleeing London with a broken heart, Alexandra returns to Australia to be with her grandparents. With only weeks together, her grandparents begin to reveal the family mysteries they have kept secret for more than half a century. A gorgeously told tale of female friendship, the price of love, and the power of hardship and courage to shape us all.

Kirsty Manning grew up in northern New South Wales. A country girl with wanderlust, her travels and studies have taken her through most of Europe, the east and west coasts of the United States and pockets of Asia. Kirsty's first novel was the enchanting The Midsummer Garden published in 2017. The Jade Lily, compelling and pacey, is her second book.

Kirsty is a partner in the award-winning Melbourne wine bar Bellota, and the Prince Wine Store in Sydney and Melbourne. She lives with her husband and three children amid an old chestnut grove in the Macedon Ranges, Victoria.

Books available for sale thanks to Shakespeare's Books.
