As recommended on BBC Radio 2 Book Club, Helen Walsh's THE LEMON GROVE is a tense, sensuous and piercingly insightful story of sexual obsession, set on the Mallorcan island 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.
