The Lost Garden is an eloquent portrait of the losses incurred as we struggle to hold on to our passions. The novel begins with the family of Zhu Yinghong, whose father, Zhu Zuyan, was imprisoned in the early days of Chiang Kai-shek's rule. Zhu Zuyan spends his days luxuriating in his Lotus Garden, which he builds according to his own desires. Forever under suspicion, he indulges as much as he can in circumscribed pleasures, though they drain the family fortune. Eventually the entire household is sold, including the Lotus Garden. The novel then swings to modern-day Taipei, where Zhu Yinghong falls for Lin Xigeng, a real estate tycoon and playboy. Their cat-and-mouse courtship builds against the extravagant banquets and decadent entertainments of Taipei's wealthy businessmen. Though the two ultimately marry, their high-styled romance dulls over time, leading to a dangerous, desperate quest to reclaim the enchantment of the Lotus Garden.

Lonely and stagnating in a soulless job, thirty-seven-year-old Marin Ellis is in need of a new start - but she is not prepared for the one she is given, when, after her estranged father and his second wife die in a car accident, she is made guardian of her fifteen-year-old half-sister Rebecca. The half-sisters are practically strangers, and their life in Hampshire is stilted and strange. At Rebecca's pleading they move to the picturesque village of Goswell on the Cumbrian coast, settling into the charming Bower House on the edge of church property. When a door to a walled garden captures Rebecca's interest, Marin becomes determined to open it and discover what is hidden beneath the brambles. She enlists the help of local gardener Joss Fowler, and together they begin to uncover the garden's surprising secrets. In 1919, nineteen-year-old Eleanor Sanderson, daughter of Goswell's vicar, is grieving the loss of her beloved brother Walter, killed just days before the Armistice was signed. As winter passes into spring, her mood remains bleak despite her attempts to alleviate the emptiness she feels. When her father decides to hire someone to help Eleanor restore the once beloved, but now neglected, vicarage gardens, she is enchanted by the possibility of a new garden-and the gardener her father hires, Yorkshireman Jack Taylor. Jack understands the nature of Eleanor's grief more than anyone else seems to, and as they spend time together, a surprising-and unsuitable-friendship unfolds... The Lost Garden is a luminous novel about tragic secrets, the chance for forgiveness, and the healing that can come from a new start.

Unbeknownst to Caroline, she is in fact the illegitimate child of the Duke of Cley.

She works in the flower garden, vegetable garden, the orchard and she makes boat trips on the lake which she reaches by walking down the steps from her living room. The garden provides the flowers for the many bouquets that can be found in the the artist's rooms. Inside the book, complex flowers and many bouquets are waiting to be filled with an abundance of colors.

By mixing them you can, for example, get 10 different shades of green or any other color you wish to use. You can place a piece of paper behind the page which you want to color so the colors won't touch the next drawing.

Blending biography, nature writing, and memoir, The Ghost in the Gardenoffers a fresh perspective on Darwin's legacy by exploring the history of his childhood garden in Shropshire and the men and women who tended it. Darwin never stopped thinking about the garden at his childhood home, The Mount. It was here, under the tutelage of his green-fingered mother and sisters, that he first examined the reproductive cycle of flowers, collected birds' eggs, and later, with assistance from the house's gardeners, began the experiments that would lead to his theory of evolution. Only two acres of the original site remain, now dominated by overgrown ashes, sycamores, and hollies; the carefully tended flowerbeds and circular flower garden are buried under suburban housing, the hothouses where the Darwins grew experimental pineapples long gone. A century and a half later, with one small child in tow and another on the way, Jude Piesse finds herself living next door to the old kitchen garden where, as a boy, Darwin used to steal fruit. Walking the perimeter of the former garden with her newborn daughter almost daily, she wonders what impact the garden and the people who tended it had on Darwin's work. The Ghost in the Gardenre-examines Darwin's legacy, tracing the origins of his theory and uncovering the lost histories of those who inspired it. It is a ramble through the terrains of memory, legacy, family, and the interconnectedness of all things.
