Maggie is recovering from a stroke in her overgrown and neglected garden in wealthy Cambridge, Massachusetts. Tristan, a landscape architect, is rebuilding the garden next door for the new homeowners. He spies Maggie through a crack in the stone wall between the two properties, and is intrigued by her beauty and her strong will as she tries to learn how to speak and walk again.

The affair between Tristan and Maggie rejuvenates both of them, and Maggie's neglected garden thrives. Night Gardening is a story about the healing power of love, but it's also a romantic tale about passion blooming in life's later years. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I'm listening to the audio book. It has promise, but hasn't completely lived up to it. Still, for a summer book to listen to, it's entertaining. Nice to see a love affair between older, less than perfect looking people. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy Barta | 2/5/2014

    " The true meaning of love, and love of the garden. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy D. | 1/31/2014

    " Not exactly a romance - the main characters are in their 60's, one has had a severe stroke - and there is too much talk about plants, gardening, alcoholic middle-aged children, and class in Boston (daughter of immigrants & son of monied WASPs) - for this to qualify as romance, I think. But it is a moving and beautiful story. Interestingly, Swann is a pseudonym for Newbery Honors winning author Kathryn Lasky. "

    " I absolutely loved this book. There are some books that stay with you over time and this was one of them. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Meggityb | 1/23/2014

    " Now why did I even finish this book? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 puck | 1/22/2014

    " this book took me by surprise, and i loved it. the environment made the delights in this book even more unlikely, and i'm not going to tell you anything more because i don't want to ruin a single bit of it. i picked it up because a jacket review said something about it being as good as young adult fiction, but for adults, and i agree - and it turns out that the author is actually a pseudonym of kathryn lasky, who looks to have written a metric ton of children's books. ... does "metric ton" even make any sense? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara | 1/21/2014

    " another one of my all time favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nell | 1/4/2014

    " This is a well-written story about renewal - of a neglected garden and a woman recovering from stroke. The widow and a landscape architect designing the garden next door bond as they restore her garden and find love late in life. I've given this 3.5 stars because of the last two chapters. I am tired of romance novels with older characters ending the way this one did. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Eudeikis | 12/30/2013

    " I really liked the book, except the author kept repeating things, like 3 times. That was a bit annoying. AND, the book resembled a romance novel at times. Even though, I did enjoy reading it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Book Concierge | 12/23/2013

    " Very light read. Not great literature, but entertaining and enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne Slater | 12/16/2013

    " Lots of great gardening factoids. If this had been "One Woman's Garden Journal" I would have liked it better. I DID like the fact that She and He found each other--- heck, it's a romance with good gardening on the sly. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Krista | 12/4/2013

    " A little light weight for my tastes. Nice story, nice characters each playing a part, nice flowers and gardening....but still left me lukewarm. Am reading it for a book group so I'll be interested in finding out what I'm missing! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frances | 11/27/2013

    " A wonderful,touching story. My sister yelled at me because it made her cry. I loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy T | 10/31/2013

    " This was an enjoyable book about one women's recovery from a stroke and finding love and repairing her garden after years of neglect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie Michelle | 10/25/2013

    " I bought this book for my mother. I really liked it, she was offended as she thought she was to young to read it!! hahaha, she was older than the gal in it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 10/11/2013

    " This is the story of Maggie's stroke. During the winter, she hasn't made much progress with her therapy, but when spring comes she wants to rejuvenate her garden. A landscape architect from next door helps with both her flowering and the flowering of her garden. A beautiful love story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Teresa | 9/12/2013

    " This was a love story concerning an older adult suffering from a stroke. It was interesting "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ladiibbug | 12/7/2012

    " I read this 5 or more years ago and still remember what a sweet love story this is. The man and woman are in their late '50's as I recall, lots of gardening and flower references as the man is a landscape artist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue Kaplan | 11/19/2012

    " Poignant, reassures one that love comes in all forms, all ways, all ages. "

    " This book started off with promise but jumped the shark. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dawn | 9/28/2012

    " What a sweet book. Combination gardening and romance. And so inspirational to think that people can fall in love even if they are not in their 20's! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edna | 5/6/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blanche Klein | 1/14/2011

    " I had waited for quite a bit till it arrived from the library . It was nice light reading very enjoyable . Your never to old to fall in love and develop a secret connection to keep inside you forever "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vishy | 11/6/2010

    " One of my alltime favourite books! Beautiful love story about a lady who is recovering from a stroke and a landscape gardener next door how the lady and her garden bloom together. I loved both the love story part and the gardening part of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Roxanne | 3/12/2010

    " I liked this a lot up until the last two chapters. The ending caught me by surprise and not in a good way. "

    " Sumptuous! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denisewiden | 10/20/2009

    " Borrowed lots of fiction from my library with the theme of "gardening" ...they make it easy for me to check out lots of titles on a topic that I like with their thematic tables. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 7/31/2009

    " I found this book very poignant. It shows how someone can find something special and meaningful near the imminent end of life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janice | 3/18/2009

    " Audio book performed by Dick Hill. Such a good book! But, I did not like the ending. Life is so short live it! "
