The Wild Garden

(1996)
A novel by

 
 
Kate Mackenzie is on the brink of success as an artist when she meets Gabriel Erskine, twenty-two years her senior. She is captivated by his understanding of her paintings and his outlook, so different from that of her friends, and six months later Kate moves into Gabriel's beautiful house in Fife, set in rambling gardens. She doesn't know him well, but what better way to change that than by living with him?
Henrietta Winthrop has no idea, when she arrives in St Andrews, that Gabriel Erskine lives nearby. Almost thirty years earlier, she made a decision that affected both their lives, a decision she has often questioned since. When she discovers that the young woman she has befriended in the grounds of the ruined cathedral lives with Gabriel, Henrietta is stunned, yet can't resist an invitation to Allansfield. But how will she feel when she sees Gabriel and Kate together in the home that once could have been hers?
At Allansfield, the arrival of Gabriel's son Hugh, with his young child, has brought the age difference with her lover sharply into focus for Kate, while her creativity is stifled by the luxury around her. When she realises that Gabriel has lied to her about the past, Kate begins to wonder if she can ever be fully part of his life - and if this is what she wants anyway...
