When Susannah Nelson turned eighteen, she said goodbye to
her boyfriend, Jake and never saw him again. She never saw her brother, Doug,
again, either. He died unexpectedly that same year.
Now, at fifty, Susannah finds herself regretting the paths
not taken. Long married, a mother and a teacher, she should be happy. But she
feels there’s something missing in her life. Not only that, she’s balancing the
demands of an aging mother and a temperamental twenty year old daughter.
Her mother, Vivian, a recent widow, is having difficulty
coping and living alone, so Susannah goes home to Colville, Washington. In
returning to her parents’ house, her girlhood friends and the garden she’s
always loved, she also returns to the past and the choices she made back then.
What she discovers is that things are not always as they once seemed. Some
paths are dead ends. But some gardens remain beautiful.
