Against the backdrop of a house steeped in history and a thriving new gardening business, three women unearth the memories of the past and uncover a dangerous secret--finding in each other the courage to take chances and embrace the future.

Stella has a passion for planning that keeps her from taking too many risks. But when she opens her heart to a new love, she discovers that she will fight to the death to protect what's hers.

Trying to escape the ghosts of the past, young widow Stella Rothchild, along with her two energetic little boys, has moved back to her roots in southern Tennessee--and into her new life at Harper House and In the Garden nursery. She isn't intimidated by the house--nor its mistress, local legend Roz Harper. Despite a reputation for being difficult, Roz has been nothing but kind to Stella, offering her a comfortable new place to live and a challenging new job as manager of the flourishing nursery. As Stella settles comfortably into her new life, she finds a nurturing friendship with Roz and with expectant mother Hayley. And she discovers a fierce attraction with ruggedly handsome landscaper Logan Kitridge

But someone isn't happy about the budding romance...the Harper Bride. As the women dig into the history of Harper House, they discover that grief and rage have kept the Bride's spirit alive long past her death. And now, she will do anything to destroy the passion that Logan and Stella share...

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2005-04-15)

Stella Rothchild moves to southern Tennessee, hoping to put her husband's tragic death behind her and build a new life for her two little boys. She lands her ideal position, managing the Harper House Garden nursery. Roz Harper feels an immediate connection and moves the family into Harper House as a condition of the job. She neglects to mention the resident ghost, as well as landscape designer Logan Kitridge. Stella is a born manager; Logan hates forms and schedules.

The sparks between them intrigue Logan and frighten Stella, particularly when the Harper House ghost clearly resents their growing closeness. Susie Breck's Southern accents are warm and soothing, inviting you into the story. Each woman is from a different part of the South, and Breck has accents to burn. The tale unfolds painstakingly slowly, but the pace should pick up considerably in book two of Roberts's "Garden Trilogy".-Jodi L. Israel, MLS, Jamaica Plain, MA
