In March 1941, Virginia Woolf filled her pockets with stones and drowned herself in Englands River Ouse. Her body was found three weeks later. What seemed like a tragic ending at the time was, in fact, just the beginning of a mystery. . . .

Six decades after Virginia Woolfs death, landscape designer Jo Bellamy has come to Sissinghurst Castle for two reasons: to study the celebrated White Garden created by Woolfs lover Vita Sackville-West and to recover from the terrible wound of her grandfathers unexplained suicide. In the shadow of one of Englands most famous castles, Jo makes a shocking find: Woolfs last diary, its first entry dated the day after she allegedly killed herself.

If authenticated, Jos discovery could shatter everything historians believe about Woolfs final hours. But when the Woolf diary is suddenly stolen, Jos quest to uncover the truth will lead her on a perilous journey into the tumultuous inner life of a literary icon whose connection to the White Garden ultimately proved devastating.

Rich with historical detail, The White Garden is an enthralling novel of literary suspense that explores the many ways the past haunts the presentand the dark secrets that lurk beneath the surface of the most carefully tended garden.
