Like her legendary namesake, Lilith Collett lives in an Eden she is bent on destroying. If her family vex or thwart her in any way, the paradise of a garden that enchanted their childhood suffers for it. The vine, the rockery, the pergola - nothing at Cold Domain is safe from Lilith's ruthless slash-and-burn policy. Enter an archangel: Miguel-Angel Gippini Algarón Lopez de Rego, under whose spell downtrodden Barbara dares defy her mother. And when William's lover Caspar also joins the battle in his own subtle way, the fate of the Colletts and their garden are finally and unexpectedly sealed.
