English lavender is a novel about friendship. To friendship ruined and revived, friendship, at every age of a person revealing differently. This is the story of three young people, connected by common childhood memories, but they chose in the future different roles and surroundings. Complex vicissitudes in the life of characters, moods in the state on the eve of the First World War, personal characteristics – all this keeps in suspense until the last page of the book. And the details of the Edwardian way of life, registered with a truly jeweled clarity, recreate in the narrative the romantic and nostalgic world of “Old Good England”.
