'Nothing is wasted, Simone. The love we give never dies.' At fourteen, Simone Fleurier is wrenched from her home on a Provencal lavender farm and sent to work in Marseille.
Her life there is hard and impoverished, but Simone discovers the music hall and a dream: to one day be a famous dancer and singer.
But when war threatens, Simone makes a decision that will lead to great danger - yet ultimately prove that love, just like wild lavender, can grow in the least likely of places ...
Belinda Alexandra has created a tale of passion and courage that moves from the backstreets of Marseille to the grand music theatres of Paris, from the countryside of Provence to decadent pre-war Berlin and jazz-age New York.
Wild Lavenderis a feast for the senses that will live on in the imagination forever...
