Read full description of the books:
This is a very British story both in the tangled web of the past history of "the Great Aunt" and in the modern tales of the current domestic lives of Helena and her various cousins, lover, her work and relative distance from others. Everything is quite proper---except when it oh so definitely isn't.
The story exists in two times, the early 1920s, just after the war when the wounds are still very fresh, and the beginning of the current new millennium. In the first, the setting is a gathering spent over a weekend at an English country home, the home of an MP. The guests are largely friends of his wife who is celebrating her birthday. They are variously artists, writers, scholars...different sorts than their host. Ultimately, there is a murder.
Flashing forward to the near present, Helena, adopted as an early teen by The Great Aunt, learns, on that loved woman's death, of that party and of that death so many years ago, and resolves to find whatever truth she can. That is the essence of Death in the Garden. This is not a cloak and dagger mystery--more of a cerebral, thought inducing read, and a treat for Anglophiles.
I plan to seek out more of Ironside to read.
