The Violets of March - Sarah Jio (2011)
Emily Wilsons life is in the middle of change. After a best selling novel in her twenties, her marriage falls apart, and she retreats to a small island where her elderly aunty lives. There she finds a diary, left behind that tells of lost love and lives ruined. Wondering who could have written the story leads Emily into learning about her aunty, and the friends still on the island.
Of course, our lonely Emily gets to meet handsome men who live alone ,and we all know who the romance will go. No surprises on that front, but it was a nice piece of escapism for me, in a busy week.
