The owner's mother, Madame de Fayols, takes pleasure in unsettling and undermining her. Her stories of the Domaine's past reveal a lingering evil that seems to haunt the garden. It gradually becomes clear that Madame de Fayols has a very personal reason for wanting to destroy Ellie's peace of mind. Second World War. Two very different women have their lives irrevocably changed: Iris, a junior intelligence officer in London and Marthe, the blind girl who left her rural farmstead to work in the lavender fields and is slowly drawn into the heart of a Resistance cell operating in Nazi-occupied Provence.
