Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Always and Blackberry Winter, a heartbroken woman stumbles upon a diary and steps into the life of its anonymous author.

In her twenties, Emily Wilson was on top of the world: she had a bestselling novel, a husband plucked from the pages of GQ, and a one-way ticket to happily ever after.

Ten years later, the tide has turned on Emily's good fortune. So when her great-aunt Bee invites her to spend the month of March on Bainbridge Island in Washington State, Emily accepts, longing to be healed by the sea. Researching her next book, Emily discovers a red velvet diary, dated 1943, whose contents reveal startling connections to her own life.

A mesmerizing debut with an idyllic setting and intriguing dual story line, The Violets of March announces Sarah Jio as a writer to watch.

What a Read‼️

I just finished The Violets of March and was totally and completely taken with this book. I simply could not put it down. Job well done, Sarah.

The violets of March

Good story but too short for the price. There are diary excerpts within this book which are written to take up half the page, so really this is more like a 200 page book. Took me two hours to read so I feel ripped off!
