This was a thoroughly enjoyable read that I've been looking forward to since seeing the cover. This is overall a mystery, an adventure and a romance that takes place in two different centuries following two different women who are both searching for something. The mystery starts in 2017 when Anna finds a box hidden in a wall ands takes it upon herself to uncover the mystery of it. Running parallel is an adventure in 1887 in Chile where Elizabeth from Cornwall has travelled to search for a flower. I was very much intrigued with both stories, though really liked Elizabeth's adventure slightly more and waiting expectantly for each of her chapters. There is a love story in both centuries, though one happens and the other is just starting to bloom. Very enjoyable
