Summary

When Holly breaks up with her boyfriend Dean, she’s at a loss as to what to do next. But things go from bad to worse when her beloved grandmother Ivy dies - and Holly is left in charge of sorting out Ivy’s house and garden.

As she sorts through her grandmother’s belongings and makes her way through the wilderness outside, Holly soon finds that there is more to Ivy than meets the eye and uncovers a surprising family secret that changes everything.

This is a heart-warming and hilarious story from Catherine Ferguson about starting over, learning to garden and most of all learning to love.

Not for me

I don't like to give poor reviews but to read this you need to be the sort of person who believes that; 1 , someone who doesn't know the difference between delphinium and ragwort can get a job as a professional gardener and 2, someone who has never read a book can become an author.
Badly written and badly read. A waste of a credit
