Краткое описание

The White Garden: A Novel of Virginia Woolf.

In March 1941, Virginia Woolf filled her pockets with stones and drowned herself in the River Ouse; her body was found three weeks later. Six decades later, in this novel from the author of A Flaw in the Blood and the Jane Austen mysteries, landscape designer Jo Bellamy has come to Sissinghurst Castle to study the celebrated White Garden created by Woolf's lover Vita Sackville-West—and also to recover from the grief of her grandfather's unexplained suicide. There in the shadow of one of England's most storied castles, Jo unearths a shocking find: Woolf's last diary, with the first entry dated the day after she allegedly killed herself."Barron, a pseudonym for thriller writer Francine Mathews, puts her talents for suspense to good use examining the death of Virginia Woolf from the vantage point of present-day England. The story begins when American Jo Bellamy sets out to study the White Garden at the estate of Virginia Woolf's lover, working for Long Island clients who want to recreate it. Her mission also has a personal component: figuring out why Jo's beloved grandfather, who worked at the garden as a youth, killed himself. After the head gardener passes Jo a journal he found in the tool shed, which may be Woolf's work, Jo embarks upon a wild tour of Woolf's old stomping grounds, tracking down answers and missing pages.... Barron invests the text with a quick pace and an absorbing plot, making this a dynamic thriller with a well-tempered literary fixation."—Publishers Weekly
