Edinburgh, 1923. After four years spent in an orphanage, bright, spirited 15-year-old Shona Murray finds her niche in a city florist’s, where she excels. She is content there until, suddenly, she must make decisions that will change everything. Fraser Kyle, the owner of the florist’s, proposes marriage. Should she accept, or renew her childish love for Mark Lindsay the doctor from the orphanage who first showed Shona the Handkerchief Tree that inspired her? Or will Brett Webster, a Canadian cousin just arrived out of the blue, steal her heart? As world storm clouds gather, Shona must find true courage to know where her happiness lies.
