"It is the autumn of 1920, and Leah Breckenridge is desperate to find a way to provide for her young daughter. After losing her husband and infant son, she is angry at God and fearful about the days ahead. Finding refuge in a boardinghouse run by her late husband's aunt, Leah begins the slow process of mending her heart.
Is it the people who surround her--or perhaps this very house--that reach into her heart with healing? As Leah finds peace tending to an abandoned garden, can she find a way to trust God with her future?"
I found the storyline intriguing, however as I read I was disappointed to find the story lacking- in all areas. The author got you interested in the characters only to touch the surface with each of them. The story lacked deeper meaning. I felt I really did not get to know any of the characters really well. As I read on I hoped that the story would have some deeper message and that it would delve deeper into the characters- however I was sorely disappointed. When I read a book I like to get to know the character and feel as if I am understand their perspective in the story. I was unable to read this book and feel any connection with any of the characters.
