It is the 14th of July, and the world is about to change . . . Set at the start of the French Revolution, the story centres on a young woman, from a down-at-heel aristocratic family, caught up in the bloodthirsty early years of the Terror, as events in Paris are duplicated in a small town in the South-West of France. But her private passion is her search to create, by grafting, cross-pollination and experiment, an exotic repeat-flowering crimson rose such as had never been grown before then in Europe. Meanwhile, an American balloonist lands in the fields nearby, and falls in love with her sister; and the young local working-class doctor is torn between ethics, reason, revolutionary zeal and unrequited love.A beautiful, elliptical novel about history, love, revolution, the march of science and progress, all beautifully mirrored in the rose-growing metaphor and the rose-grower's passion.
