Fans of Rebecca will be enthralled by Lucinda Riley’s atmospheric debut, The Orchid House. Spanning from the 1930s to the present, it tells the story of Julia Forrester, a concert pianist still mourning the loss of her husband and young son when chance brings her back to Wharton Park, the great house where her grandfather once grew orchids for his wealthy employers. When she crosses paths with Kit Crawford, now heir to the vast estate, the two are drawn together over an old diary that tells of two lovers cruelly separated on the eve of war. But there’s much more to the tragic tale…. From England to Thailand to the decadent South of France, Julia uncovers passions, lies…and the stunning truth that will forever change her life.

This was such a pleasant read. The characters were wonderful an so easy to connect with. One of the most enjoyable books I've read in some time. I highly recommend this book.
so endearing, history come to life,
The word that comes to mind when I think of this book is luscious. It's beautifully written and I, like another reader, did not want it to end.
One of the best books I have read in a long time. Several sub-plots that kept you reading & reading & reading... The story line was great!
I truly enjoyed this book. The author had me totally engrossed from the very beginning. It was a beautiful love story with some suprising twists. I didn't want it to end.
