Summary Note The Midsummer Garden brings to life the stories of two intriguing women across centuries. Travelling between lush gardens in France, windswept coastlines of Tasmania, to Tuscan hillsides and beyond, this delightful tale lures the reader on an unforgettable culinary and botanical journey...1487 Artemisia is young to be in charge of the kitchens at Chateau de Boschaud but, having been taught the herbalists' lore, her knowledge of how food can delight the senses is unsurpassed. And all of her talents are needed as she organises the final preparations for the sumptuous wedding feast for Lord Boschaud and his bride. But after the celebrations are over, Artemisia dares to believe that her future lies outside the chateau. But who can she trust with her secret?... 2014. There is nowhere else Pip Arnet would rather be than on the mudflats of Tasmania foraging for native clams. Pip is an expert in predicting threats to healthy ecosystems. Trouble is, she can't seem to strike the right balance in her own life. She'd thought that her fiance Jack understood her need to make a real difference in the world of marine biology, thought that he knew she couldn't make any plans, even his tempting trip to Italian vineyards, until her studies were complete. But lately, since she's moved in with him, he seems to have forgotten everything they'd discussed...When a gift of several dusty, beautiful old copper pots arrives in Pip's kitchen, the two stories come together in a rich and sensuous celebration of life's choices, family and love, passion and sacrifice.
