The China Garden

Author: Kristina Olsson



Over two hot weeks one summer, cracks emerge in the veneer of a small coastal town.

When a newborn baby is found abandoned in a backyard, this dramatic event pierces the lives of three very different women.Laura has returned home for her mother's funeral after years in exile, only to discover her upbringing was based on a lie; elderly Cress, the moral compass of the community, conceals her own vices; while young Abby walks the streets, her bruises wrapped in baggy clothes. But it is gentle Kieran, an unlikely guardian, who knows their secrets and watches over them. As their lives collide, what is buried can no longer remain hidden.

The China Garden is a captivating story about betrayal and its echoes across generations.
