"For six dreadful months, David Corstorphine has tried to come to terms with his young wife's death, while caring for his three motherless children. Try as he may, David is unable to return to work, and his only form of solace comes from working in the garden of his parents' estate in the Scottish countryside.

Dispatched unexpectedly to New York, David's family hopes that the impromptu business trip will help him get back on his feet. But the journey proves both disastrous and heartening. David finds himself settling in comfortably among the strangers of a seaside Long Island town, and takes a job as a gardener. But it is the people he meets, the pain he confronts, and the joy he is able to once again experience that prove to be magically transformative-- and as David learns to accept his enormous loss, he is able to open his heart to love once again."

Firstly so sorry that this has taken me so long to read.

I have just started this. It is fairly depressing so far. but think I am enjoying it.

rest assured tho' it is a well travelled book. It has been in my holiday bag ready for me to start for years. (sorry) but have obvioulsy never finished my current read at the right time.

I started this book while on a cruise round the canaries.

Thank you once again and I apologise for the delay

Just finished this today. It was quite depressing and though I felt sorry for David, he did make me cross, we've all lost someone close (maybe not a life partner)

I was cross and upset, he went to the other side of the world leaving his motherless children behind to cope on their own, then got close to another child knowing that he was going to leave him also.

I also felt there were a lot of coincidences in this book.

Thank you again for sending me this book.

included in the following release challenges:

Septemebers Ultimate challenege (release)
