Description

The passionate, late-life love of Beth and James begins in 2003 on a blind date in a London restaurant. Attracted by James's cheerful openness, Beth is drawn into an unlikely encounter between his larkiness and her own romantic faith. From then on they bond, exchanging love-texts, exploring sea walks and gardens and sharing their past lives with flashbacks to Beth's rural childhood and her marriage to a dark, charismatic minister.

Telling stories runs in Beth's family, so she keeps up with her friends, following their efforts to find love in a soulless, materialistic world. But Beth's own passion for giving and commitment is pushed to the limits as she and James struggle with her divorce, problems with each other's children, and life-threatening illness. In the end, tested by pain, they discover something larger than themselves that goes beyond suffering and loss.

Violet, with its in-depth portrait of contemporary relationships, gallery of characters and links to Purple and Blue, is the climax to the Lavender Blues trilogy, and a powerfully observed, realistic account of modern love.
