9781945654640Death can take a lot of things, but it can’t take your memories.  

1912: Ava Knight, a young English aristocrat, boards the Titanic and meets a sailor, a soldier, and a clairvoyant woman who will change her life forever.

 2010: Taylor Romano arrives in Oxford for a summer journalism program and is invited to tea at an old manor with a cursed history.

When Taylor discovers that the Lady of the house knows an uncanny amount about Taylor and her family’s secrets, she knows something isn’t right. But before she can find answers, the old woman dies suspiciously, leaving Taylor with a single clue: the story of a Titanic survivor named Ava.

With the help of a brooding chauffeur and some historical sleuthing, Taylor must uncover the link between Ava’s past and her own before her most cherished memories are tarnished forever.

Told across time, The Poppy and The Rose is an atmospheric tale of family secrets, intertwined destinies, and the power of memory.
