The Lemon Grove

The bestselling summer sizzler - A Radio 2 Bookclub choice

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Helen Walsh's THE LEMON GROVE is a tense, sensuous story of a marriage ripped apart by desire and obsession, set in the Mallorcan summer holiday resort of Deia. Perfect for readers who loved APPLE TREE YARD, it is soon to be a major film.

Each summer, Jenn and her husband Greg return to Deia, on Mallorca's dramatic west coast. This year the arrival of Emma, Jenn's stepdaughter, and her new boyfriend Nathan threatens to upset their equilibrium. Beautiful and reckless, Nathan stirs something unexpected in Jenn. As she is increasingly seduced by Nathan's youth and the promise of passion, the line between desire and obsession begins to blur. What follows is a highly-charged liaison that puts lives and relationships in jeopardy. For Jenn, after this summer, nothing can ever be the same.

From Publishers Weekly

19 May 2014 – From the start, English married couple Jenn and Greg expect their annual summer holiday to Majorca to be different this year, with their 15-year-old daughter, Emma, joining them along with her new boyfriend, 17-year-old Nathan. They don't yet know, though, just how different things will be. Jenn, as the reader soon learns, is actually Emma's stepmother, but she is also the only mother Emma has ever known. The close relationship between the two, however, is not enough to prevent the unexpected attraction Jenn feels for Nathan, which, apparently, is mutual. This novel from Walsh (Once Upon a Time in England) is driven by her awareness of the connection between lust and romantic love, natural beauty and artifice, and passion and regret. Equally compelling is the honesty with which Jenn confronts her own aging and the knotty emotions that this awareness triggers. Though Jenn's preoccupation with Nathan is necessarily myopic, it's unfortunate that the book doesn't provide much sense of her before this reckless May-December romance. While some brief sketches of the family's history are provided, the picture never becomes clear enough to fully illuminate Jenn's compulsions.
