And here it is – the sequel at last!


The French Promise is the sequel to The Lavender Keeper and will be released next month but here’s a sneak peek. I shall also be on national tour and will publish details of where and when as soon as the dates and venues are locked down. Soon!

Fabulous cover, thank you Penguin and there’s some lovely news in the wind to go with the release of this novel which I’ll also be letting everyone know about shortly.

    Words cannot describe just how excited I am for this book! I could not put the Lavender Keeper down whilst reading it and I’m sure The French Promise will be the same! Thank you so much for a wonderful book!

      My absolute pleasure, Amber, thank you so much. I’m on tour for Promise so hopefully our paths will cross and I’ll be able to sign both of your books! F

    Hi Fiona
    Sincere congratulations – your books always take pride of place on my shelf. I can’t wait to add this one to my collection. Keep kicking big goals. You continue to be an inspiration to (pip-squeak) fellow authors – like me!
    Take care and best of luck with the master classes. Bryce is smiling on you, no doubt.

    Have been waiting impatiently for the sequel and am now waiting anxiously for it to hit the shelves in NZ. I know I will be unavailable to anyone once I have it in my possession. I presume it is April that it is available so I may have to take some special leave as Easter will be over.
    Congratulations on tis series it is so realistic and engrossing.

      Oh thank you, Laurelle, so much. Just a fortnight until The French Promise is released and then I’ll be on tour and hopefully coming to a bookshop or library near you where I can thank you properly.

      Enjoy it! I loved writing it. F

      Sorry, Judith, working titles for manuscripts often change when it comes to publication time. This is the sequel, I promise…no pun intended. :)

    Wow, at 4am this morning I finished, with deep regret, “The French Promise” – I wanted this book to go on and on and I hope we have not seen the last of Luc and his lavender, thank you, just amazing.

    Just discovered you by accident on telly a week ago. I am a French mum with two children (one French and one Aussie). I have been living in Melbourne for a while now. And I am a French teacher also. I need to read your books “The Lavender keeper” and “The French Promise” asap.
    I was wondering if you were speaking French (and all these stories are from your travels in Europe?). Did you have families there during the Second War? I have so many questions to ask you. Thank you again for reading my message.

    Thank you for the best two books and story with Luc and his family. i have always loved stories about the 2nd World War and to combine it with our love of Tasmania, was a true journey. I wished it didn’t have to end. Fiona, I have had the best time.

    Came across The Lavender Keeper by accident (had not read any of your work before) and thoroughly enjoyed the story – could not put it down and was surprised when I would lift my head and discover two hours and more had gone by. Am looking forward to The French Promise and anything else I can lay my hands on.

      Hi Jeanette…thank you for giving Lavender a go and I’m in the middle of a French Promise tour right now so here’s hoping you enjoy that too. As to ‘anything else’…there’s Fields of Gold and then about 14 huge fantasy novels stretching behind that, and a couple of crime books….but that’s another story! :)

    I read the Lavender Keeper as I travelled overseas this year……I needed something on the plane and while waiting in airports etc, it was an amazing story and the best part was when I got to the end and then read there was a sequel to the story, I couldn’t wait to get back to Australia to buy it……..I just loved the whole story of Luc and Lissette and their family members. When in France I went places they would have been and when in London I went to the imperial war museum and checked out the display on the holocaust and the British spy’s that went to France during the war so I got a great insight into their story, congratulations on a wonderful read and I look forward to reading more of your novels

    Like others, I was enthralled with the Lavender Keeper and could not put the book down. The characters were very endearing and so believable. Thanks for the fascinating look at this difficult era in France. Eagerly looking forward to the sequel and the continuation of Luc & Lissette’s story.

    Has to be 1 of the best books i have ever read! I was reading the last few pages here in my city garden in the UK when a lovely butterfly landed on it for five minutes, must have been attracted to the lavender colour! Made me feel tearful but in a happy way. Thanks for a wonderful book.

    I just loved the Lavender Keeper & The French Promise & was so disappointed when it came to an end as I wanted it to go on & on. It kept me on my toes right to the end. Have you written any other novels besides the Fantasy ones? I have given the names of the above books to my sister & friends who are in book clubs. These have to be the most enjoyable stories I have read in a long time.

      We ended up calling it The French Promise, Emma. It’s available in all good bookstores. And thank you for enjoying The Lavender Keeper.
